Markup - Draw on Webpages
Markup.io is a free service that gives you the ability to quickly draw and annotate on any webpage with no download or installation necessary. Markup.io runs simply as a bookmarklet within your web browser. After installing Markup.io you simply click it from within any webpage and start drawing or writing. When you are finished marking up the page, you click on publish. By publishing your drawing and annotating you essentially create a screen capture of the page. You can then share that image with others by distributing the URL.
Markup.io is a very simple tool that can really help out in the classroom. One great way to get using today would be to demonstrate a note taking technique on a web based article. You could even create a homework assignment with questions using any webpage on the WWW. Students can use this tool to annotate over a site or circle words they don't know.
