Supporting you in the classroom
Suitable for both teacher and student
Easiteach has been designed to support all lessons across a wide range of subjects and is useful in any educational setting, regardless of student age or ability. Both teachers and students can use Easiteach to create multi-modal activities that can include animation, video, sound, text and Flash files all on one page.
The software’s easily accessible toolbars and widgets also allow you to work quickly and efficiently in creating whole-class teaching activities to fit with your class learning objectives.
Easiteach has a range of key features, which makes it the ideal software application for whatever hardware your school may use for whole class teaching purposes, including:
Access a range of mini-applications that bring you a growing bank of added extras such as, calculator, clock, periodic table, protractor, picture reveal, dice, early years sudoku, word builder cards, tangrams and more. There are currently 40+ widgets available in the bank with more to be added with each new release.
The localised and searchable media bank within Easiteach comprises a wide range of curriculum-based resources including videos and animations. The media bank enables users to search for and add multimedia assets to a page and is accessible by selecting the multimedia button on the Easiteach menu bar.
There is a range of content provided within Easiteach that has been designed within the functionality of the software and that will enable you and your pupils to successfully match objectives within key subject areas. So far, almost 1000 documents spanning many subjects have been created, covering topics including speaking and listening, number and algebra, handling data, environmental change and more.
Easiteach Lite is a free player, with features such as word wallet and annotation pens that allows users to open and view Easiteach documents. Easiteach Lite is great for enabling pupils to access saved activities at home, complete them as homework and resubmit them to their teacher, without needing access to the entire product.
Easiteach works on all interactive whiteboards and will soon be available for use on other forms of hardware equipment used for teaching for example classpads, netbooks or voting devices. This means that no matter what equipment is used in your school, Easiteach can ensure consistency for training, teaching and sharing resources. The ability to import and export Easiteach documents as .iwb files also means you are not restricted by the software.
Easiteach Next Generation is available for users in a wide variety of languages, with settings easily changed depending on which language you want to work with in just a few clicks. Already Easiteach next Generation has been localised for a number of languages with more to follow.
Supports object manipulation on multi-touch devices, enabling users to enlarge and manoeuvre objects they have created with the tips of their fingers! This is ideal for encouraging pupils to interact directly with the interactive whiteboard and is perfect for use during presentations.
The toolbars within Easiteach Next Generation have been designed to make the functionality you want easier to find and aid cross-curricular use. These easily-accessible toolbars allow you to work quickly and efficiently in creating whole-class teaching activities to fit with your learning objectives. The most commonly used tools can be found in the main navigation bar along the bottom of your screen, with extra functionality available from within the main navigation.
There are a number of special effects that can now be used to enhance activity pages to allow for more creativity. Effects can be added to objects and include swirl effect, mosaic effect, blur, old movie colour, monochrome colour and many more.
Record sound and video
Within Easiteach Next Generation, users are able to record sound and video directly on to a page. Using the media bank you can also capture images, record sounds and record videos using external hardware, such as microphones or digital cameras, and add them to your page and your personal media bank.
Type letters, words and sentences on to a page and listen to them being read back to you. The text-to-speech functionality within Easiteach enables text on the page to be read by one of the voices installed in your operating system. Text-to-speech can read both single words and whole blocks of text within a text box. This feature is available in a wide variety of languages.
Handwriting and shape recognition
Write words or draw shapes freehand and the writing and shape recognition tools within Easiteach Next Generation will recognise your markings. You can either write or draw images with your mouse on a computer screen, or use your interactive whiteboard pen, and the handwriting and shape recognition tool will transform your markings into typed copy or shaped objects with sharpened edges.
There are a wide variety of language tools built-in to Easiteach Next Generation that will help you to quickly and simply create activities for your whole class. These tools include a cloze tool (for creating missing words activities), remove punctuation tool (ideal for testing punctuation knowledge by removing all punctuation from a block of text and asking your class to put it back in the right place) and word wallet (for use alongside the cloze and remove punctuation tools).
Alongside the language tools, there is also a wide range of numeracy tools available with Easiteach Next Generation that will assist you in creating simple but effective whole class activities for use in maths lessons. Some of the numeracy tools available include number lines, number grids and an equation builder.
