April Blog: Student-led Environmental Initiatives for School

Student-led Environmental Initiatives for School

This month's blog is Student-led Environmental Initiatives for School .

Ecological education is a new pedagogical approach different from the traditionally established acquaintance with nature. First, it is a building of a conscious attitude to the environment, awareness of the need to preserve Earthly treasures, and the desire to use natural resources rationally.

Second, it implies observance of moral and legal principles of nature management and promotion of ideas on its optimization, as well as active work on studying and protecting the environment in your area. This article provides ideas for student-led environmental initiatives.

Guest Blogger Odessa Powell has been copywriting and writing texts for business pages on social networks since her student years. In her free time, she enjoys yoga and learning foreign languages.



App of the Month

Every month we are going to feature a different, and hopefully FREE, iPad/iPod/iPhone/Android educational application. Visit our ever-changing app page.

The App of the Month for April is Microsoft Lens: PDF Scanner by Microsoft Corporation ( iOS and Android ).


Microsoft Lens (formerly Office Lens) trims, enhances, and makes pictures of whiteboards and documents readable.

You can use Microsoft Lens to convert images to PDF, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel files, digitize printed or handwritten text, and save to OneNote, OneDrive, or your local device. You can even import images that are already on your device using Gallery.

PRODUCTIVITY AT WORK

  • Scan and upload all your notes, receipts, and documents

  • Capture whiteboard at end of the meeting to keep those action items on track

  • Scan printed text or handwritten meeting notes to edit and share later

  • Keep your business networking contacts handy by scanning business cards and saving them to your contact list

  • Choose to save as PDF, Image, Word or PowerPoint formats into OneNote, OneDrive, or local device as location

PRODUCTIVITY AT SCHOOL

  • Scan classroom handouts and annotate them in Word and OneNote

  • Scan handwritten notes to digitize and edit later (works with English only)

  • Take a picture of the whiteboard or blackboard to reference later, even if you're offline

  • Keep class notes and your own research organized with the seamless integration with OneNote


Microsoft Lens: PDF Scanner is available for Apple and Android devices.

Compatibility: Requires iOS 15.0 or later on Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and Android version 7 and up on your Android device.
