Inspiration Software has announced the launch of Inspiration 8. Designed to offer one place for students to plan, research, and complete projects, Inspiration 8 expands the ways students and teachers can use visual learning to improve achievement across the curriculum, according to the announcement.
In addition to enhancements to existing capabilities, such as the RapidFire tool for quick brainstorming, template wizard for creating custom templates, and Site Skeleton export for fast Web site creation, Inspiration 8 features new capabilities intended to help students and teachers:
* Discover more ways to engage and learn visually with video and sound integration capabilities and a keyword symbol search.
* Jumpstart assignments, gather research, and streamline projects using curriculum templates, drag-and-drop actions, and enhanced transfer and export tools.
* Write with more clarity and accuracy using the Word Guide, an innovative dictionary/thesaurus and an automatic spell checker.
* Access free Inspiration Web Resources for more than 1 million additional symbols, more than 50 Curriculum Packets and on-demand training videos.
The online Curriculum Packets help teachers integrate visual learning techniques as they address multiple student learning styles. Each online Curriculum Packet includes standards-aligned supplemental instructional units for high school level language arts, social studies, and science.
