    SCREEN CAPTURE TOOLS
    If you are a mac user, like me, screen captures are EASY to do!
    Capture your desk top: Hold down apple, shift, 3
    Capture a portion of your desk top: Hold down apple, shift, 4 (use crossbar to select portion that you want captured).

    The very best resource on screen capture tools, once again, is Sue Waters. I use Picnik as my photo editor, therefore, Firefox is the easiest FREE browser for me when it comes to screen captures. If you have a Picnik account (it is free), you can then activate your Firefox screen capture tool. This tool allows you to capture the webpage and you can then crop on the Picnik site and use the screen jpg for voicethreads, etc.
    To learn about other screen capture tools, visit Sue's incredible site, below.

    PLAYLIST:MUSIC PLAY LIST: Adding Music
    Many of you have expressed interest in adding music to your blogs. If you can bear this rough voicethread created by me (in the midst of a barking dog, Facebook alerts, and interruptions to drive my children from one event to another), you will be able to do it easily!
    Playlist is one option, but it is blocked by our school filters. I would like to encourage you to use MIXPOD. You paste the code into a text box just as you would in the voicethread below.
    I hope this helps!
