One of Window's
best kept secrets is the Print Screen (PrtScn) key. Did you know that the Print Screen key is a high powered copy command. Pressing the Print Screen key takes a screenshot of your desktop and copies that information to your clipboard. From there, you simply paste the copied information into your favorite image editing program - Paint
, Photoshop, Corel Draw, etc., then save the image as a JPEG file. Next you can insert that image into a slideshow app like Google Presentation, Zoho Show
For this assignment, you will need to take screenshots of the following tabs inside of your Personal Start Pages:News Tab: (Netvibes, Pageflakes, iGoogle - take three screenshots)
Home Tab: (Netvibes, Pageflakes, iGoogle - take three screenshots)
Google Tools: (iGoogle only - take one screenshot)
Web 2.0/Blogs: (Netvibes, Pageflakes - take two screenshots)
Remember, your tabbed pages should contain specific content
as per my 10/16/07 post, Information Islands on Your Desktop.Take a total of nine separate screenshots of your Personal Start Pages
in iGoogle, Netvibes and Pageflakes. (Mac users Press Shift+Apple +4)Screenshot of NEWS TAB from Pageflakes
You must paste each of the nine images in Microsoft's Paint,
Photoshop, or Corel Draw, then name the image and save it as a JPEG file.
Finally, create nine slides in Google Presentation and insert one screenshot image on each slide. Write a three to four sentence description for each screenshot. In your three to four sentences, talk about the information on each screenshot and the usefulness of that information in a paperless classroom.
