We designed Notes to encourage students to spend a bit more time describing the key features of their designs and explaining the thinking behind their solutions. This is immensely helpful for teachers when reviewing and assessing their students' work.

Notes are far more interactive, contextual and engaging than a simple description added once a design is finished.

Adding Notes to a design

  1. Open an existing design in My Designs or start making a new Shaper or Blocker design.

  2. Click the Notes tab.

  3. Click the Add Note button and tap on your design to place your first note.

  4. Click on the speech bubble to write your note or click the Microphone button to narrate a short note.

  5. To add more notes, repeat step 3 and 4.

Editing Notes

  1. To edit a note click on the 'Pin head' followed by the Pencil button.

  2. To delete a note click on the 'Pin head' followed by the Bin button.

  3. To change the angle of a note click on the 'Pin head' followed by the Spin button. Move your camera angle around until the note is facing your desired angle, then click the Spin button again.

Playing Notes

  1. Open any design with notes.

  2. Click the Notes tab.

  3. Click the Play button. The notes will play through sequentially.

  4. You can use the Previous and Next buttons to skip forward and backwards.

*If a note has an audio recording, the recording will play automatically. Teachers can disable audio recording in Teachers Dashboard > Settings > Privacy & Integrations.
