Combined Text and Graphics
Students can use Canvastic to create graphic, text, and presentation documents. Graphic documents can include editable text. And text documents can include graphics. Combine them to create striking class presentations. Integrating curriculum with text and graphics is a natural for our students. When they draw what they know and write about what they have created, their projects are better and more complete. It provides full desktop publishing for K-8 users.
A Clear On-Screen Display
Canvastic's interface is pleasant easy to use. It is clear and uncluttered. The tool icons are based on industry standards and the screen is not messy nor is it trying to be "colorful." The students add the color to the Canvastic screen! The students love using Canvastic because they know how to use it very quickly. Time isn't wasted in the classroom trying to explain "cute" icons. The preview palette shows exactly what the next mark on the canvas will be.
It Grows With the User
We deliver some example preference sets with the product. But you are welcome to combine tools, color choices, palette positions, default tools, default fonts, and palette visibility in any way you choose. Create a separate set for each grade level or a special sets for certain activities. You control the available options to keep kids on task and increase their chances for success. Younger students can taught the tools one at a time. Older students can utilize more complex choices. Everytime we add a feature we add the ability to customize it as well. For example, you can turn the spell check feature on or off. If it is on you can turn off the "learn" button to keep your dictionary from becoming corrupted.
