Awesome Highlighter

Awesome Highlighter is a convenient tool for teachers to use to point students in the right direction. With Awesome Highlighter , you can instantly share important parts of any webpage with your colleagues or students. It allows you to highlight text on a web page and then gives you a short link to the highlighted page .

Another great feature is that you can attach a virtual post-it note to the selection you highlighted. You could send your students to an article and attach a discussion question directly to the post.

I can think of a few ways to use Awesome Highlighter in class:

  • Students could use the sticky-note feature to summarize the article.
  • Teachers can use it to show important parts of their online lessons
  • Teachers can demonstrate how to scan a web page for important information with a visual cue for students.
Can you add any ideas to this list?
