2Simple Software has developed modelling software for infants aimed to meet UK education standards.
The software, 2Simple Modelling Toolkit consists of a suite of five core activities each with three differentiated levels linked to National Curriculum objectives. Each activity has been designed to link to core subject areas. This means the solution can be used as an ICT tool to support Literacy and English; Numeracy and Mathematics; and Science teaching.
The software was developed by a team of eight teachers at London Metropolitan University. They also wrote the Infant Video Toolkit, which won 2 Gold Awards at BETT 2002.
The application offers five core modelling activities: a stamp tool; simple painting tools; and a puzzle tool. It also offers an options utility that lets teachers direct tasks and define each activity, control print options and provide alternative auditory language support. All the activities are easy to manage, says 2Simple Software, and the software ships with full documentation.
As well as English, the cross platform product supports Welsh, Bengali, Sylheti, Punjabi and French.
2Simple Modelling Toolkit costs £29.
