As you’re probably already aware, come January, we’ll officially launch into the new decade. It’s 2010, and we’re ready for it.
Perhaps more important, it’s also a new quarter at SCAD, and it’s a great time to resolve to improve the work that we do and to put our best selves forward.
On that note, we at TWS thought it would be a good time to highlight some tech tools that may help give you a new outlook on writing (not to mention drawing, painting, studying, building, and all the other amazing things you guys do here).
Take these tech tools for a test drive. If you like them, add them to your writer’s toolbox. Even better, use them to create a writing project, then come see us in the Writers Studio.
Tech Tools for Writers, Artists and Readers
If you’ve ever read a document online and wished you could mark or doodle all over it, this may be the tool for you. A.nnotate (yep, that’s the correct spelling!) is a free tool which lets you, well, annotate documents. So, mark up a draft. Write questions in the margins of a PDF. Save paper by reading and making notes online. Draw arrows and make circles. In short, do whatever it is you do when you read a paper document, but do it online. Intrigued? Here’s the link.
Let’s face it, memorization isn’t most people’s favorite way to spend time. However, when given lemons, we at TWS make lemonade (or put them in our sweet tea). BrainFlips is one of many online flashcards sites, but from a design standpoint, it’s one of the strongest. The best thing about using online flashcards is you can harness the Power of the Internet to study virtually anywhere, at any time. The second best thing? You save time and paper. Not too shabby. Anyway, here’s the link.
As always, let us know what you think. It’s a new year, and we know you’re ready to knock this quarter out of the ballpark.
