Site of the Day: Sketchpad by

After so much geek over the past few sites of the day, I found today's website and decided it was the perfect way to offset that. Sketchpad from is an easy, online sketchpad that lets students draw and create within their browser without the need to make an account. At first it came across like all kinds of other online sketching tools I've seen. But, as I dug into it more, I found lots of features that many others lack. The gear tool, for example, is highly customizable so that the gear can be practically any shape you'd like. There is also a spirograph tool, which takes me back to my youth, and a web tool as well. The real stand outs for me are the blending types, such as darken and overlay, that really kick it up a notch. Add in layer control and it's a really full feature tool! If you currently have students creating posters or drawings the traditional way and you'd like to offer an electronic method, I really recommend checking out Sketchpad from


  1. it's cool! For digital drawing and sketching you should look at a graphics tablet. I suggest you get a xp-pen drawing pad ( ) . Over the years I have gotten very good with doing certain tasks with it .

  2. It's good to see writing that is so good that you know the writer has done the homework on the subject. I am impressed with your insight and viewpoints on this topic. Thanks a bunch.
