Easiteach Geography provides a set of tools that are designed specifically to support the teaching of geography to students of all ages. Explore directions and routes, measure distances and even create your own maps. Tools included are: grid overlay, grid fill, grid reference reader, compass rose, navigator, scale reader, distometer, and map builder.
Inspired by teachers and teaching experts, RM Easiteach’s innovative and easy-to-use teaching tools are software equivalents of familiar teaching tools, including place-value cards for Math, sentence builder cards for English Language Arts, map building tools for Geography, and stopwatch and timer tools for Science. The RM Easiteach curriculum tool bars have been designed for use with Elementary, Middle and High School students
You can select a ready-made grid or create your own custom layout. They can be overlaid onto maps, downloaded from mapping websites, or used as a basis for creating new maps to help the teaching of grid references.
Grid Reference Reader
When moving the cursor over a map, the Grid Reference Reader displays the coordinates of points on the Grid, automatically reading in the format of that Grid (A1, 4 or 6 figure Grid References). If an image is dragged around a map, its reference will be displayed. This is very useful for planning such things as cycle routes.
A grid fill tool allows you to shade the grid overlays. It may be used to show land-use or change over time. The fill color can be changed on the RM Easiteach toolbar.
This tool displays a selection of compass roses that can be added to any map. Using the RM Easiteach toolbar they can be resized and rotated for greater accuracy.
This produces a green marker for creating and following paths, using left-right or compass directions. The innovative Navigator tool enables students to explore directions, routes and journeys by moving around existing maps, or maps that you have created. Movements can be recorded and played back.
Rulers can be resized, rescaled and rotated to make a variety of measurements on the page, or to help construct plans.
The distometer tool can be used for measuring paths, shapes, journeys - in fact anything! It can be used to take accurate measurements from images imported into Easiteach or captured by hardware such as digital cameras.
This map builder palette enables you, or students, to construct maps using pictures or map symbols. The size of the image can be pre-set, and once on the map it can be further stretched and adjusted
Easiteach is a software program developed by RM. RM provides interactive software and services to schools worldwide. This software is primarily used in combination with interactive whiteboards.
Easiteach is designed to support education by engaging students and bringing lessons alive. It’s useful in any educational setting. One of the popular boards is the RM Interactive Whiteboard Classpad. Software packages mostly work with specific whiteboards, but the Easiteach works with all whiteboard brands.
RM has earned four awards for its dynamic products and remains popular because of its improved efficiency. RM Easiteach is the best and most innovative software in educational computing. It is the best teaching tool ever and has transformed teaching.
"This is used by a group of Business Analysts currently designing a new workflow solution for our firm (major project). Since we use process maps as our basic work tool, this board was exactly what was needed to create and maintain our maps from design sessions. We determined that 80% of the normal whiteboard work had to be repeated a some later date. Now we simply pull up the clearly dated map copy for comparative work purposes, I calculated that it would take only 35 saved hours for the board to pay for itself. After a week of heavy use, it looks as though we will save around 12 hours per week by circulating copied maps. This will improve communication (same map and notes for all), improve meeting attention (no note taking), and reduce backfill reviews. Now the only problem we have is that other areas of our IT Department want to use it. Chuck Haag Vice President Process Development Unit national Default Exchange"
"Pretty good experience with this company -- they steered us toward lower cost options and bang for our buck. Some miscommunication about what product we wanted, but it got sorted out. One thing to keep in mind is that the cost of the install for our electronic whiteboards is about 1/5 of the cost of the whiteboard itself."
