How to capture a screen shot

Getting students to capture a screen shot of their online work is one way for them to have a record of what they did.

Grab is a utility that is already on your Mac!  It allows students to capture their work and save it as a picture.  Students can then insert the picture in a Word document and write about it.

Sample problem:  
How many different triangles can you create that has an area of 1 squared unit?  Describe the triangles you created.

Here are some instructions I found on an Apple support website.  The language is fairly friendly so you can actually give students a copy.

Grab is also great for you!  Think of all the images you can save and use to make up worksheets, posters etc.

  1. A while back, someone shared a short cut with me: COMMAND-SHIFT - 4. Once you activate these buttons, a little dot will appear. Once this appears, you can click and select the area of the screen you want to capture!
