Simply draw on the screen using a stylus or with your finger.
The side bar displays your currently selected tool, colour and size of line for the selected tool.
|Draw freehand – A good all round tool that can be used where another tool isn’t quite the right choice.|
|Highlighter – Perfect for marking out passages of text or parts of an illustration.|
|Arrow – Tap and drag across the screen to create an arrow, great for labelling parts of a picture or image.|
|Straight line – Tap and drag across the screen to create straight lines.|
|Circle – Tap and drag to create a circle or ellipse, two overlapping circles could be drawn to create a Venn diagram.|
|Square – Tap and drag to create a square or rectangle, a simple tool that could be used to create a table or simply outline text labels you’ve added.|
|Triangle – Tap and drag to create a triangle, adding horizontal lines with the straight line tool could allow you to create a hierarchy pyramid.|
|Text label – Tap anywhere on the screen to add a text label. Use in conjunction with the arrow tool to label an image.|
|Magic wand – Select any drawn element such as a line, triangle or arrow to move, resize, rotate or remove. If you select a text label you’ll also be able to edit the text.|
|Eraser – Set the eraser setting from the top menu bar. Choose from regular or transparent. The eraser works with all the tool and is a great way of creating stickers that can be shared with ClassCloud.|

Annotate enables collaborative learning by allowing students to send their drawings from one device to another using ClassCloud.
In order to allow sharing between devices you firstly need to enable the option within your organisational settings. (Note: This must be completed by a user with Admin or Owner privileges.)
Log in and click the organisation name at the top right of the screen:
Finally, devices will only be able to share with other devices in the same Place.
Now when you tap the share button, you’ll be able to change the “To” field and select from a list of available devices:
If the receiving student has Annotate open on their LearnPad, the image will automatically appear within Annotate.
If Annotate is not open the image will be delivered into the ClassCloud folder which can be found in the default tools menu.
