Finally, there's a spreadsheet designed for 21st Century learners! Start the kids calculating on Tool Factory Spreadsheet in kindergarten, then switch to Microsoft Excel by middle school. All the formulas work in the same way, but you have a lot more instructional options to guide your students. Drop a spreadsheet anywhere on the page. Connect the tables using simple algebraic formulas, and watch the answers play out dynamically. Use the interactive graphing feature to insert all the common types of charts and graphs. Watch your graph automatically update as students enter values into the spreadsheet's cells. Use this feature on a whiteboard and discuss relationships between numbers with the entire class.

At the click of a mouse you can enhance any spreadsheet with pictures, video, and sound effects. Click-and-type to add instructions to the margins or record the instructions using the built-in sound recorder. There's even a voice engine that reads the text out loud.

Keep the students on-task. You can't get to row 7000! Here are some great project ideas:
  • Instructors can generate step-by-step instructions for any spreadsheet to guide students through the learning process.
  • Make pictographs using pictures, video, and even sound effects!
  • Drop a spreadsheet anywhere on the page. Connect the tables using simple algebraic formulas, then watch the answers play out dynamically.
  • Teachers can build worksheets that challenge students to draw conclusions from the data and charts above!

    Use it with a Whiteboard!

    Switch the program's toolbars to the bottom so that younger students can reach them. Activate the Whiteboard controls and instantly gain access to the “right mouse” and “CTRL” icons from the toolbar.

    Use it together with Tool Factory Slide show. One mouse click will turn your spreadsheet project into an impressive presentation.

    It's Critical for Special Education and ESL!

    All the Tool Factory programs are completely adaptable for special education. Establish core knowledge that lets students transition easily to the most common adult software programs. Read letters or phonic blends for pre-readers, then adjust the settings to speak words and sentences as the students advance. Listen to the computer "sound out" every word, as you are typing. Fluent readers will use the speech tools to hear-and-revise their writing. Simplify the interface for any age group and learning style. The same interface is shared by every application in Tool Factory Workshop so users switch seamlessly between programs without re-learning. Click-and-drag is all the skill that’s required.

    “It’s an intuitive introduction to technology integration, my students love the ease and playfulness of Tool Factory Workshop.”
