App Review: Skitch

It was INSET yesterday and I did some sample lessons for my colleagues which were designed to put them back in the classroom as well as introducing them to some of the apps I have been using. The principle one I worked with was Skitch, one of a range of image annotating apps that are available on the appstore. Most of the videos on youtube suggest that a principle reasons for liking Skitch is because of it’s links with Evernote. However what Skitch gives you is a quick and easy image mark up tool for looking at portraits on cartoons, obviously these can then be saved and emailed to students with ease (or Chirped!). Perhaps more powerfully it allows you to take a picture of a students work and annotate it live on the screen for the benefit of others, perfect for differentiating work, rewarding students who do a good job and highlighting good practice. Skitch has quickly become the app I use most in the clasroom.
