Have you ever used the DRAW tool in a Quaver Curriculum lesson?

With just a simple click on your Navigation Bar, you can easily draw on any screen even without an Interactive Whiteboard. This month we added the ability to save your markings to that particular screen!

Click DRAW in any Curriculum screen to check it out.

Draw Tool

Simply click SAVE when your drawing is complete and DRAW to close the toolbar. Now the same marks will be accessible the next time you access that screen – just click DRAW to pull them back up.

Navigation Bar

You can also use the WHITE CURSOR icon next to the DRAW button to activate the elements on the screen – like the PLAY button – while still displaying your markings. Give it a try!

We’ve added even more great  functionality to the Blank Staff – available from the same DRAW menu in any lesson. 

Blank Staff

You can now change the clef or time signature with one click, and drag and drop notes and rests onto the staff easily. Use the pen to draw bars to make eighth or sixteenth notes and SAVE your work as the staff graphic for that particular Curriculum screen every time you return!

To access the Draw Tool:

  • Log in to your QuaverMusic.com account.
  • Click the Teacher Tab or School Bus Stop Sign
  • Click on Curriculum at the top of the Quaver Flagpole
  • Choose any Grade Level you have an active license to access
  • Choose any Lesson and LAUNCH 
  • Click the DRAW tool in the navigation bar and enjoy!

Give it a try, and let us know what you think!
