The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

We tuned into a Pennsylvania Coalition for Public Charter Schools webinar to hear from the experts about social emotional learning in an online environment.

We were blown away by the metrics, strategies and successes of the group of teachers from PA Cyber who lead a program titled “Girl Talk,” which brings together female students from grades 5 to 8 to connect with one another, share a safe space for open discussion, and create an opportunity for students to grow their emotional regulation skills.

Among their approaches to getting the students to open up and discuss how they are feeling, is having the girls share an “emoji” that best represents how they are feeling that day.

Similarly, students are anonymously polled in a “word cloud” format pictured above-- in real-time -- to demonstrate common sentiments of the students. These types of activities, the teachers and counselors noted, are important to establishing a comfortable atmosphere for sharing, which is an important precursor to developing social and emotional learning capabilities at this adolescent age.

We’re all for using these engaging forms of technology to help our students grow in ways that will help them become expressive, self-aware and healthy adults.
