Keep pace with global changes. A multi-user database allows students to work collaboratively to collect data in the same file, at the same time, across the school's network! Collaborative work is a core skill in the standards for 21st Century Learning. Like all Tool Factory Workshop products, the database is fully configurable for any age level or learning ability. The text-to-speech tools have been seamlessly integrated so every word can be spoken as the students' type.

Students can take surveys, and build their own database in a matter of minutes. There's a fantastic graphing feature that lets you build colorful charts and graphs in just a few mouse clicks. Extensive search and sorting capabilities give you the power to quickly wrangle large amounts of information with ease. Any database can be viewed as a list or spreadsheet to quickly show all the records at once.

Get your entire class entering information into the same database, over the network. Use it with a whiteboard for whole-class training. Here are just a few idea:

  • Classify organisms with student-collected pictures, video, and sound effects.
  • Record the results of science experiments. Extensive search and sorting capabilities give you the power to quickly wrangle large amounts of information with ease.
  • Build lab reports with table views, charts, and graphs.
  • Make a photo album, build a photo-integrated address book, or make a cookbook.

    Tool Factory Database supports a wide range of file formats, making it ideal for use with a digital camera, scanner, or any clip art. The program is fully configurable for any age level or learning ability.

    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.”
