Day 9:

Greg’s Teacher deal o’ the day – For those of you with a drawing hand, Sketchbook allows you to make amazing freehand digital graphics. This is a later version of the very same software that Michelangelo used to paint the Sistine Chapel. The hard part for Michelangelo was getting the printer to work on the ceiling.

Autodesk SketchBook Pro 2010 – $70 at Amazon

You can use the software and draw pictures using a mouse, but to take it to the next level you’ll need a drawing pad. Here’s an entry level candidate.

Wacom Bamboo Drawing Tablet – $59 at Amazon

Greg’s Teacher website of the day – Toondoo.com

ToonDoo is a cool, comic-creating tool that allows you to create your own cool comic strips with just a few drag ‘n drops ‘n mouse clicks! Check out the site to see how it can be used for classroom projects, reports, etc.

Bryan’s Tech deal of the day – Here’s a bluetooth headset with style and function. Noise cancelling and multiple connections make this a good buy.

Samsung WEP850 – Originally $89.99 now $10 ($60 Instant $10 MIR) at Newegg

Bryan’s Tech download of the day – Aviary is a suite of applications that allow you do almost anything with any type of media. Image editing, audio editing, vector images, image effects. Everything but video editing. They also have a good number of tutorials.
