Our old friend, Microsoft's Snipping Tool

No need for panic! Microsoft's Snipping Tool that so many of us use is not entirely going away, but it is being replaced by a new and improved tool called Snip & Sketch.

Our new friend, Snip & Sketch

My daughter is a freshman in college and I noticed she is using an app called Pocket Points.

It is designed to keep high school and college students off their cell phones while in class, and rewards them for doing so. I can't decide what I think about it, because I can tell that the intent behind the app is good, but I also know that students use their phones during class sometimes for instructional purposes.

You can even create a 'teacher store' to offer students incentives, or they can collect points to use at local and online businesses for student discounts, coupons, and gifts.
