AutoDraw....Fast Drawing For Everyone From Google!

We are having a little fun on this Sunday afternoon.  

And I have something super cool to share with you today too!
In fact, it is an A.I. Experiment from Google, which is such an awesome place to check out!
According to the A.I. Experiments site

Since 2009, coders have created thousands of amazing experiments using Chrome, Android, AI, Web VR, AR and more.  We are showcasing projects here to inspire others to create new experiments too.  
I have featured Quick, Draw on my blog and in presentations before.  I love this one...It is so much fun. 
And now we have AutoDraw, which is one I will be sharing and playing lots too!  
The site states, 

AutoDraw is a new kind of drawing tool that pairs the magic of machine learning with drawings from talented artists to help everyone create anything visual, fast. 

Let me show you how it works.  
You work on a digital canvas with....
a lot of choices for drawing, text, fill, shapes, color, going back and more.  
When I started to draw a house, AutoDraw gave me the options then at the top of the screen under a menu called Do you mean....
When it did this, I selected the first house and it popped up on the screen, taking the place of the house I drew. 
I then started to add details such as this tree. 
Again, I selected a tree under Do you mean and even selected the colors I wanted too.  

Once you have the image, you can also fill them with color too. 
 Here is another one....I added a little bird and selected...
one that looked like what I was trying to draw.  You can resize the drawings too. 
As your drawing starts to come together, you will see that you can continue to add, change and color things in your drawing. 
In the left hand corner, you will find a drop down menu that gives you some options to start over, download and share. 
You will also find a How-To and...
Shortcuts, along with the....
Artists responsible for these neat little drawings. 

I can AutoDraw being used for a lot of different things with all grade levels.  

It really got me thinking...

With sketchnoting being such a popular and productive way to take notes, could AutoDraw be a way to do this too?  

As you check out AutoDraw and think about how you could use it with your students, please check out....
this little video and the site here.

Have fun...I can't wait to hear how you will use this with your students too!
