Sparkol Launches StoryPix For Education
Sparkol, creator of leading whiteboard explainer video software VideoScribe, today launched StoryPix, the latest addition to its growing creative product suite for education.
Launching exclusively at Bett 2018, the world’s leading education technology show, attendees will be the first to try out the exciting new product and experience StoryPix’s extensive use cases in education.
StoryPix enables users to create short narrated videos quickly and easily. After taking a photo or uploading an image, users can add text and voice description as the software zooms into elements of the photo, easily saving and sharing the final product with as many people as they like.
The quick-to-create, easily shareable nature of StoryPix videos enable teachers to use the tool to set creative homework tasks and explain complex subjects in a fun, digestible format, as well as providing students with a compelling revision tool on a platform that younger generations prefer.
Examples of StoryPix uses include:
· Presenting the history of famous monuments
· Describing the inspiration behind a piece of art
· Teaching the four main parts of speech
· Explaining the cerebral cortex
· Providing a deeper explanation of class notes to ensure students understand the lesson
StoryPix is part of Sparkol’s long-term education strategy that will see accessible, subject-specific and affordable solutions made available throughout 2018. These education solutions will provide a strong mix of classic and technology-driven learning methods for teachers and students to utilise.
Zoe Taylor, CEO at Sparkol said: “We’re excited to be launching StoryPix at Bett. It’s such a powerful teaching tool for all ages and abilities and we wanted teachers and education staff to be the first to try the new software to see how easy it is to use as part of a blended learning approach.”
Outside of schools, StoryPix can be used as a teaching tool such as:
· Driving instructors can provide students with a revision video for the ‘show me, tell me’ element of the driving test
· Site managers can run through the health and safety requirements of a building site
· Doctors can highlight visual symptoms of common health conditions
