I'm a huge fan of this app for many reasons; it can be used for any age group, it covers letter and number formation and it can be customised to suit the individual needs of the student. Even the default audio sounds can be edited, deleted or replaced with different sounds. And a whiteboard is also included to allow for tailor made lessons.
This app would be a really useful and valuable addition to any home or school. So if you'd like a copy of School Writing ,comment below and I will post the winners on June 24th 4pm EST U.S.
You can also purchase the app right now by clicking this button.
Suitable for children to adults, School Writing allows the teacher to prepare lessons using written instructions, unique images and audio instructions, to which the student can respond using written and audio recordings. Students learn shapes, letters, numbers, words and more. This 'open scaffold' enables the lessons to be words, number or symbols and extends the use of School Writing far beyond early education. The ‘Whiteboard’ section allows a teacher to draw or import images to be traced with audio answers.
The app presents the fonts for your school, including individual Cursive letters. Education-approved handwriting fonts used in the United States of America schools – Zaner-Bloser and D'Nealian.
Students intuitively trace pre-handwriting shapes, uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, words or whiteboard images that you import with the touch of a finger. Hear and see letters with associated images and sounds, which can be customized to relate to your students. Create your own pre-handwriting shapes and word lessons with associated audio for the letters, numbers and words. Add your own images from the photo library, and record your own letter phonetics. The completed lessons can be automatically emailed to the teacher with the student’s tracings and recordings included.
Create, save and share your own word lessons, profiles and customizations to suit your own curriculum, with complete control over the management of the lessons, the app and student profiles. Full import and export functions are included for iPad classrooms.
A lockable app.
You can lock the app into a restricted student mode. In student mode, word lessons cannot be created or deleted and profiles cannot be changed. Other options are available depending on your choices. These include access to the settings and access to any external links.
School Writing allows you to:
• Customize all content including images, sounds and teacher example tracings.
• Create your own pre-handwriting shapes to trace or import images. For example, a sample lesson has some Chinese characters where the student can trace the character and record the sound and meaning of the character.
• Create and manage multiple profiles.
