Speaking Image

speakingimage Speaking Image

I discovered Speaking Image via my Diigo network this morning and the wheels are spinning.  The application, an online tool for the interactive annotation of images,  allows users to create and share their interactive images with individuals and groups and to manage permissions for collaborative work.  Moving way beyond adding text annotation similar to Flickr’s notes feature, Speaking Image offers paint tools, layers, a full fledged wiki-based collaborative environment, and the ability to tag and embed.

Still in Beta, the Speaking Image project archive is not yet rich, but I can see its great potential as a tool for understanding and analysis.

Here is one video from the video tutorials page:

I can’t wait to share this one with our teachers!

Imagine inspiring collaborations around:

  • History students annotating maps and historical images or labeling artifacts and facsimiles of documents.
  • Art students drawing attention to details of great paintings or their own works or analyzing photography.
  • Science students annotating images relating human body, ecosystems, animals, the environment.
