Scan Master 2013

As a holiday gift  to  myself, I purchased a portable scanner-the Scansnap S1100. This simple looking device is smaller than a traditional skinny three hole punch. While in Canada on the holidays, I dug up all my old newspaper clippings, sports stat sheets, high school memorabilia, and old travel photos. With an early cup of coffee, I often found myself watching the World Junior Hockey Championships on TV while at the same time scanning piles of old time memories.

Scansnap allows you to scan as PDF or JPG. Also you can scan directly to Google Docs, Evernote, a mobile device or a desktop folder.It has OCR recognition if you need your PDFs to be searchable.

Back at school, I have found a few minutes to some of my favorite teacher resources that I have a fondness for- old maps, homebase activities, and short stories. I was able to condense an entire binder of printed short stories in a digital format.

Stop by my room to see it in action!
