Piktochart is a freemium infographic web app. Use a variety of templates and tools to create quality infographics. I decided to make an infographic of my favourite ed tech tools as my first attempt at Piktochart.
Carmine Gallo is a former CNN and CBS reporter turned author. He is also an Apple expert who has written three extremely valuable books about the world’s most valuable company and its co-founder Steve Jobs. Each book presents a specific aspect of Apple’s success. (CLICK on the BOOK TITLE to view the official YouTube video for each book.) The first book is “The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs”, the second “The Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs” and most recently “The Apple Experience”. Each one of these books can be used by both teachers and school administrators alike to better serve a community. Embedded in this post are PowerPoint presentations created by Carmine Gallo that provide an overview of each book. These presentations have been given a permanent page on The Digital Frontline as well for your reference. Enjoy – I know I did!
There was a lot of interest in the “Icon Archive” post from yesterday. I found another image and icon site that might have even more potential for educators. Icon Bug provides free images for download in a variety of formats. All images are licensed and like Icon Archive, the type of license is given for each image. The big advantage for Icon Bug is the ability to download single images. On Icon Archive, you end up downloading collections. The site design is also much cleaner without the shady looking advertising.

I came across this amazing site on Twitter yesterday that will help to solve this problem. Icon Archive is an icon and image resource bank. All downloads are free and have creative commons licenses. The extent of each license is listed with the image. The quality of the images is really quite amazing.
The pictures below are examples of the quality that you can expect to find:
