    • Spinner

      I would love to see an interactive spinner as one of the tools. It would be great if you could adjust the number of sections as well as name them. I have an ap on my ipad I use for this but would love to have it incorporated into my Gynzy games and lessons.

      • Is there Closed Caption available for hearing impaired students (CNN Student News).

        I have teachers who use the CNN Student News through Gynzy and some have requested the use of CC for their hearing impaired students.

          • Make a customizable graphing tool

            I am looking for something to help me out with my ratios and rates unit. I have not been able to find what I am looking for so I thought I would suggest it. I am looking for a fillable chart. It could be just like on your peg board tool in that you could put a 10x10 (or adjustable) grid up on the board and then facilitators could fill in the different areas according to what colours or grouping of colours that they need. I would also love it if more of the tools could be placed on current…

            • Printing Slides

              When printing pages allow 2, 4, 6 or even 8 slides per sheet. This would be helpful when presenting to class or peers to allow them to add notes next to the slide.

              This would also allow the presenter to see the slides as they would appear and to make pencil or pen changes when a computer is not readily available.

                I teach students with significant special needs. I need to be able to create my own boards (e.g. memory, sentence builders, graphs, question of the day, etc.) using pictures specific to my required curriculum. I found a memory board for your own content but it doesn't let you use pictures. Please consider adding activities that would allow us to use pictures instead of words, letters, numbers, or sentences.

                • Have a way to view/print the questions and answers in the Jeopardy style game

                  Create a way to view/print all the questions and answers from a Jeopardy style game. I have used other Jeopardy templates that I've found online, and they have had the functionality to view/edit/print the questions and answers that are loaded into each field.

                  • Base Ten Blocks Tool

                    Love your Base Ten Blocks tool! But could you please add an option to group each place value in sets of five as well? So, you already let us manipulate 1s individually, and 10s individually, etc. I was wondering if you could also let us manipulate the 1s in groups of five, and the 10s in groups of five (i.e. 50), etc.

                    Thanks!

                    • A search bar to find your own created lessons.

                      A search bar helps you locate your own lessons faster. A search bar is the normal way to locate items online, so it seems to me that a more efficient way to search is by the name of the lesson. Yes, we might place it in a folder, however, what folder? We are busy.....so sometimes you do not want to search a folder or go through every lesson created to find the one need.

                      • When "picking a partner" I have an odd number of kids in my class usually, is it possible for the last kid pick a group at the end?

                        I want for the last kid in an odd number of kids to be able to pick a group to join at the end instead of being in a group by themselves.

                        • Self check clocks

                          We love using the clocks in our classroom, but the students love the self check option. I also use it as an independent activity so if they can check themselves, it is more educational for them. Also if you could add to where you give a time and they set the clock then tell if it is correct, this makes it a game which they love.

                            This fun idea came from one of our users: My students wish that on the birthday cake celebration, they could "pop" the balloons!

                            • add an option to display more than one tens frame on the screen to allow us to model addition and subtraction.

                              Two or more frames on the board that allow you to move counters across to show addition or subtraction strategies. The counters need to be able to move to help students image the strategy. It would be helpful to show doubles as well.

                                  • Add the ability to edit the Presidents matching game so that users can use their pictures and words.

                                    The matching your own content tool is great, but my World Language teachers would like to use pictures as one half of the activity. There's a comparable activity for matching the presidents (portraits with their names) but it's not editable. How are these activities created? Is there any way to create a matching game with pictures?

                                      Hello William,

                                      Thank you for this idea!
                                      At this moment it’s not possible to use your own content for this.
                                      The only possibility we can offer, is to use your content (if you have any) to create a new version and put this online.

                                      We do want to make this possible in the future, to create a “Match with own content” tool where teachers can use their own pictures.

                                      In case your interested to create a new version with us, please contact us!

                                      Kind regards,

                                      Team Gynzy

                                      • Reading skills and famous people

                                        I think more literary material and historical figures would help round things out. My students need a lot of help with reading skills.

                                          Hello followers!

                                          Thank you for voting and giving us this feedback. It’s a very interesting idea! Could you please provide us with some extra input, examples etc. Which famous people, what kind of material would you have in mind?

                                          Some more input would really help us along in developing this idea!

                                        • Add the ability to add your own videos to Gynzy lessons.

                                          Our District has a subscription to Discovery Education. With this subscription we can download their video segments. It would be nice to be able to upload these videos to a Gynzy lesson. Also many teachers record their own lesson examples and science experiment. The ability to upload your own video would be a great addition to a Gynzy Lesson.

                                            Thank you for posting this great item!

                                            We think this would be an excellent feature, but unfortunately not possible right now. But there is, for the moment, an alternative option.

                                            You could place your videos on Youtube first, and then you could import the video from Youtube into Gynzy.
                                            The quickest way to do find a specific Youtube video through Gynzy would be to enter the video address in the search bar. For example: “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KowzeZ4tio”;

                                            Hopefully we can get more votes and requests for this item, so we can make this happen in the future!
