Although it's functions are relatively simple, they provide plenty of potential. Below are some of the uses for Skitch in the classroom.
This example shows a pupil who has identified the features of a diary
Skitch has an in-built map feature which allows the user to zoom in and out on a world map before taking a screenshot which can then itself be annotated.
Sometimes it is useful to blur part of an image which can be achieved simply using Skitch.
Skitch allows you to crop an image and focus in on a specific part. Once your image has been cropped, your chosen part is zoomed into. This is particularly useful for focusing on a particular part / question during a task. In the example shown, a specific question from a fraction activity has been selected which has then been discussed with the class and annotated to show the solution.
