Purchaser must have a minimum of 20 Inspiration 9/Kidspiration2 Licences to use this product.
With Inspiration® and Kidspiration®, students use symbols and images to represent ideas, create graphic organizers to break work down into manageable sections, and brainstorm, sort and organize their ideas. These visual thinking and learning strategies have been shown to increase academic performance for students with and without learning disabilities in content-area classes including language arts, social studies, science and study skills. Specific to special needs, Inspiration and Kidspiration are recommended for students with ADD/ADHD, autism, Asperger’s, dyslexia, aphasia, and visual or auditory processing disorders, as they provide:
- Individualized and Differentiated Instruction. Lessons can be tailored to allow students to learn and demonstrate their understanding in ways that suit their specific learning needs.
- Project-based Learning. Visual learning engages students of all abilities as they work together and contribute at their individual levels.
- 21st Century Skills Development. Inspiration and Kidspiration help students develop and gather ideas, organize thoughts, analyze and interpret information, clarify understanding and communicate clearly—all key 21st century skills that expand their ability to achieve success across all subject areas and throughout their adult lives.
In addition, both Inspiration and Kidspiration have text-to-speech, so teachers can configure it to read out loud to students who have difficulty reading or seeing a computer screen.
Comprehend. Create. Communicate. Achieve More.
For visual mapping, outlining, writing and making presentations, use Inspiration® 9, the ultimate thinking and learning tool. Brainstorm ideas, structure your thoughts and visually communicate concepts to strengthen understanding with the Diagram and Map Views. To take notes, organize information, and structure writing for plans, papers and reports, use the integrated Outline View to focus on main and supporting ideas and to clarify thinking in written form. With Inspiration's Presentation Manager, transform your diagrams, mind maps and outlines into polished presentations that communicate ideas clearly and demonstrate understanding and knowledge.
Created for K-5 learners, Kidspiration® develops thinking, literacy and numeracy skills using proven visual learning principles. In reading and writing, Kidspiration strengthens word recognition, vocabulary, comprehension and written expression. With new visual math tools, students build reasoning and problem solving skills.
Use Kidspiration's Picture View to build graphic organizers including concept maps, webs, bubble diagrams and Venn diagrams. In Writing View, students expand their ideas into written expression. In Math View, students use math manipulatives such as color tiles, pattern blocks, base ten blocks, fraction tiles and fraction boxes to build essential math skills.
Research shows that visual learning is one of the best methods for teaching thinking skills. Visual learning techniques - graphical ways of working with ideas and presenting information - teach students to clarify their thinking and to process, organize and prioritize new information.
