Headstart is a dedicated educational multimedia software for primary school and KS2. Headstart is more exciting than slideshow or presentation software but requires no additional skills. It lets you animate text and graphics easily and incorporate digital images, sound, music or video.
Also creates multimedia internet sites, screensavers and simple games. Ideal for ICT requirements at the end of KS2. Headstart can also be very effective for facilitating highly engaging cross-curriculum projects. Headstart includes all the functionality of our commercial product Opus Creator but with dedicated resources and samples.
The interface has been tweaked to make it less daunting without removing the capabilities. Teachers can use it to create or modify their own resources dedicated to individuals or to whole school objectives. It is particularly suited to special needs requirements including encouragement for higher achievers. Headstart allows teachers and mentors to make comments directly on pupils' work, on screen, and/or email projects for comments by colleagues.
