Google Keep is a versatile tool that can be used for everything from simple bookmarking to collaborative task management to image annotation. In fact, Google Keep provides one of the simplest ways to annotate images on Chromebooks and Android devices. Annotating images is handy when you find yourself needing to highlight portions of an image or to point out features of a diagram for your students. Or you may want students to do the same. For example, in a photography class you may have students mark an image to illustrate use of lighting and framing. In the video embedded below I demonstrate how to download images to a Chromebook and how to then annotate them by using Google Keep. And don’t forget that you can now quickly access Google Keep notes within Google Docs.
