  1. 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

    • 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.

        • 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!

              Hello!

              This sounds like a good idea! Do you have any ideas or suggestions for us? What kind of activities are you missing, what did you have in mind? Do you have any examples for us or websites with suggestions?

              We would love to hear your input!

            • Would you please consider some Canadian options?

              eg Canadian coin and paper money images. Thermometers with celsius only. Social Studies and History strands that have a Canadian curriculum focus and subjects. Thanks for your consideration.

                Hello!

                Thank you very much for placing this item!

                We are very curious about the ideas you might have to fill these Canadian based tools. Could you please provide us with your insights and suggestions? Maybe you even have examples for us? We would love some input on content from you!

                I’m not sure if you are aware of the fact that we already have some options regarding Canadian currency.

                Here are some tools that provide this already, through the ‘options’ or ‘settings’ button:

                Count Money
                https://api.gynzy.com/en/items/mathematics/money-count/17/1698

                Money: Learning about Change
                https://api.gynzy.com/en/#!/items/mathematics/change-money/17/262

                Pay with the least Amount
                https://api.gynzy.com/en/items/mathematics/money-value/17/378

                Paying with Money
                https://api.gynzy.com/en/items/mathematics/pay-with-money/17/1506

                Doing Math with a Receipt
                https://api.gynzy.com/en/items/mathematics/buying-groceries/17/374

                We also have a thermometer tool in which you can choose either Fahrenheit or Celcius (through Settings):

                Thermometer
                https://api.gynzy.com/en/items/mathematics/thermometer/17/352

                We do have plans to add images of Canadian currency to our image library, but we don’t have a set date for those…

              • create a "dress for the weather" bear (or other animal) with clothes for a variety of seasons - perfect for PreK and K calendar activity.

                There would be a bear in the center with a variety of weather clothes and accessories to "dress the bear" for the appropriate weather of the day - snowy, rainy, sunny, etc.

                  Hi followers!

                  This is a great idea and might be possible for us to realise! This is why we have put this item under review.

                • 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!

                    • Make saving easier

                      It would help if:
                      1. when the cursor is "hovered" over the buttons on the bottom of the screen if a label would appear explaining what the button does.
                      2. a separate SAVE button was added

                      • Add a 'group' feature so that elements can be combined and manipulated as a group.

                        I would like the ability to 'group' objects on the page so that several elements could be combined and moved or manipulated at the same time. You can see what I mean in the attached screenshot. It's the beginning of a language activity I am trying to create where students would manipulate the yellow blocks so that the Spanish words or phrases were lined up with their English translations--but the blocks and text boxes move independently of each other. I would like to be able to treat each yellow block with its text as an individual 'piece'. Thanks!

                              In addition partnering with reading A-Z so that the books can be imbedded into the lessons and read aloud to the students. You have a great, great product Gynzy! Thanks for listening!

                              • End of the Year Award Tool

                                I had another idea for an end of the year tool…Awards! If teachers could insert a student photo into an award labeled…Excellence in blank (where they could edit), Super Improvement in blank, You made us all look forward to coming to school, Creativity Genius, etc. The teacher could choose premade pages to use and copy some pages to make several different awards. Perhaps they could be printables, as well. The red curtains could open and some music selections (Pomp and Circumstance, etc.) play while the awards flip forward (like a PowerPoint.)

                                      • Create New Content

                                        I find it difficult to figure out how to switch between things on the same board. So for example, on the matching game, I created 4 different content pieces, but how do I know which one I am on when I load the board? Or if I go to settings to choose one of the other content, why doesn't it go right to it. I have to use the arrow key to see another page and I am not sure if it is the topic I really want because the title still only says memory. I find this very confusing.
