Using Keynote to teach traditional drawing skills

During lockdown I started to develop a range of books to teach lower school students how to draw and create ideas using Keynote. Now that the classrooms and workshops are fully operational again, I could implement what I had developed into my classroom teaching. It has been instantly clear, using Keynote has had positive impact on standards and engagement in pupil work. Design sheets are far more detailed, graphical content looks far more professional and many hours have been saved by students in creating content. The images below are from my current Year 7(Age 12) and Year 8(Age 13) pupils project books.

Such a great book, Damian!

Love the idea of using Keynote to prototype their designs through shapes and sketching!
