    What program should we use for school papers.

    My son started doing school papers, he's in fourth grade. Last one was about the Solar System. Then I was doing a bunch of drawing and coloring to help him out, and keep him motivated. I downloaded Solar System coloring worksheets to help myself out, it worked out fine. There has to be a better way of doing this, I know there is. I just don't know what would be a good program for the both of us to learn, to make this whole process easier, and more enjoyable. Also since some of you are teachers here, I need to know to what extend this is acceptable with the schools.

    ^Most episodes are on youtube if you don't want to download the whole torrent at first.

    Some really good BBC documentaries about space, although maybe a little more adult.

    I was referring to a software program such as Microsoft word where you can write and and print pictures onto the paper also. What is the best program for this that we should learn how to use. What program they use in schools. What would a teacher recommend. Wish my internet speed were good enought to download Torrents or even watch a video.

    IMO the best and easiest program to make nice documents is Ragtime. I haven't use it for ages but it used to be my favorite, a million time superior to anything Microsoft has to offer. I haven't tried the latest version but it used to be very easy, very intuitive to use. Just draw a rectangle, chose where you want it to be and what you want to put inside (text, spreadsheet, drawings, pictures , ...), you can move it or resize later if you want, just like in a professional publishing software.
    You can download a free trial version to try it first at ragtime dot de - - RagTime 6 - Willkommen und guten Tag! (german company)
    The things we regret most is the things we didn't do

    Anything and everything, I dont think schools DO have one programme that they use to draw on computers....

    Whatever you feel comfortable with, in fact, I would recommend using google to find what you want, don't reinvent the wheel.

    Also there are plenty of tablet computers or a new tablet/stylus perripheral that you can draw with onto your computer.

    I think it would be better for the students to learn the work rather than focus on the computer aided drawing of the objects.


    ^ nice piece of software
