Easiteach has a range of key features, which make it the ideal software application for whatever hardware your school may use for whole class teaching purposes, including:
Easiteach Next Generation will be 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.
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.
The localised and searchable media bank within Easiteach comprises over 4,500 curriculum-based resources including over 70 videos. The media back 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.
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.
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 in typed copy or shaped objects with sharpened edges.
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, random item generator, navigator and more. There are currently 20+ widgets available in the bank with more to be added with each new release.
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 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 effect whole class activities for use in Maths lessons.
