It’s 2020 and the classroom you once knew, with dusty blackboards and book-heavy-nap sacks are starting to change… More and more schools and classrooms are adopting classroom technology to make learning efficient and fun. Teachers are using interactive apps and online teacher created resources to produce school clip art on demand, to illustrate: geometry, help kids learn about science or grammar.
Turning classroom lessons into games and activities has never been easier thanks to this brilliant tool developed by Montreal based company Webisoft. Impressively, the tool has been developed to handle over 8 languages to cater to all mother tongues. For this example, I chose English.
I caught up with William, co-founder of Edigo.io to find out everything a teacher needs to know about this awesome SaaS (Software as a service). We signed up ourselves and took it for a spin. Running an on-line magazine, we create social memes and quick graphics, so we knew what to expect from sites like Canva. As a creative director, I already liked what I saw within seconds of signing up via Facebook and playing with the interface. I put on my teacher’s hat and away I went. For the purpose of this experiment, I decided I was an ecology teacher for a grade school class. Today’s lesson you ask? Frogs!
SIGN UP PROCESS
The Sign up process was a breeze, since they are Facebook connected. It took 2 seconds to try out the 7 Day Premium Trial and get going with my mini class poster for the beginning of a lesson about Frog Facts. As I Googled amphibious facts with my left hand on my iphone, I quickly scanned the UI (User Interface) and found it pleasantly familiar with my mouse hand.
MY FIRST LESSON – SCHOOL CLIP ART HERE I COME!
As someone who plays with these tools a lot, there was no learning curve but I can’t imagine there would be a steep one for any teacher already interested in taking classroom technology to the next level. I was able to find a template that I liked and start customizing type. I loved the default font, so it didn’t take long to whip up my masterpiece.
CUSTOMIZING YOUR SCHOOL CLIP ART GRAPHIC OBJECTS
I really liked how beautifully illustrated and accurate the frog clip art was and I was able to find 3 frog illustrations from water colour realism to cute 3D styled cartoons.
DUPLICATING YOUR BOILER PLATE
No need to re-invent the wheel with this clever teacher’s tool, with one click I was able to duplicate my 1st Frog Facts template and quickly create Fact#2… I was also able to copy graphic objects and type to speed things up.
