Most writers are easily distracted; trying out just one more app often sounds better than slogging through your manuscript.

i'm trying to use some applications of web 2.0 in class
Paula Jamieson's curator insight, May 15, 2013 12:51 AM

It's like being back in the classroom. This afternoon I have discovered this interesting article........after taking a workshop on 'iPads to support Writing' this morning. Typical. There are a couple here I haven't used or explored. I find that articles like this often trigger my thinking back to "I use to use that" or "That's right I downloaded that but didn't have a purpose at the time......".

Write to Read - WriteReader

Write to Read - WriteReader | iPad & Literacy | Scoop.it
There are more than 750 000 apps in the iTunes AppStore, with many doing similar things, so it is very exciting to find an app that does something really different.  WriteReader is one of those app...

WriteReader is designed to help children learn to write while they are also learning to read.

 

Following its development and testing, researchers concluded that WriteReader can:

• Improve early learning of reading and writing skills

• Motivates children to write

• Promote cooperation between children and adults

• Encourages kids to be creative and imaginative in sentence creation

• Develops interest in the written language

 

The app is aimed at children aged from 3 to 10 years, although I believe it would be suitable for older children who have special needs.

Two Reflective Teachers: Book Creator and Resistant Writers

Two Reflective Teachers: Book Creator and Resistant Writers | iPad & Literacy | Scoop.it

A special education teacher reflects on Book Creator and how it motivates students who are resistant writers.  Here is her story:

 

"As a Special Education teacher of upper elementary grades, I have several students who are resistant writers. This app has amazing potential to motivate them to write more since the finished product is beautiful, accessible, intuitive, and reflective of their efforts.

 

I have been using this app with one of my students with intellectual disabilities and what an incredible tool! We took pictures of this student making various emotional faces and then helped her draft a repetition book. She loved being able to record herself reading the pages and willingly practiced and practiced her Frye words and her fluency, without even realizing that she was doing it. She is also happily practicing pronunciation and sentence structure, skills that she would sometimes prefer to ignore!"
