Licensing is very different to previous versions: Schools or organisations need to purchase the single user software and licence, as well as any additional licences such as this Network licence. If you haven't done so already, please add the Kid Pix 5 STEAM Edition download version to your cart before ordering this network licence.

IllustrationsA recount does not always require illustration, but for some audiences or some formats, such as eBooks, illustrations could well enhance the retelling. Some students also excel in art but struggle with writing, so illustrating their work gives them a greater chance of producing something of which they can be proud. Illustrations could be drawn freehand and then scanned or photographed for inclusion in a book or eBook, or they could be drawn on computer using free web 2.0 tools or apps.

Attendance at an actual event often yields good digital photos to add to the recount. These can be cropped, rotated and enhanced using free software or apps. Check out Gimp for Macs, Photoscape for Windows, Photo Editor HD Lite for iPads or Aviary's free Photo Editor for Android mobiles. Alternatively check out the Software for Learning site or do a Google search for "free photo editor" apps or software and you'll find plenty.
