Tech Tip Tuesday: Use your camera as a scanner

IMAG0253Sometimes nothing but a good quality flatbed digital scanner will do, but other times you are in a hurry.  Digital cameras have gotten better and better and now it is often pretty easy to 'scan' something you need with your digital camera or even your camer on you cell phone.

Case in point.  You are in a hurry to get a PowerPoint ready and you absolutely must have the chart on page 32 of the student's mathbook.  A quick check online tells you it isn't available on the textbook's website so you want to scan it, but...the scanner is down in the media center.  Grab your digital camera, keep a steady arm, use the autofocus.  You've got it!

Welcome to Jorgie Learning

I really am learning and this blog is maintained both as a record of some of what I am doing as well as a place for me to train and teach others about creating an online presence. So please don't mind the dust. We aren't remodeling we are learning!

Visit some of my other blogs or the other blogs I find mildly entertaining for a more polished feel.
