Using the iPad with the writing process

Using the iPad with the writing process | Languages, Learning & Technology | Scoop.it

[Excerpt]: "’ve been working with teachers who are developing the writing process in an attempt to motivate their boy writers. We have been looking at the writing process and working out where the enthusiasm lags, or where skills need developing. This part of the process is important, reflecting on why the children are stalling, or on what the challenges might be really helps the planning process. Finally we looked at what apps the schools have, what apps the teachers are confident with and, most importantly, what apps would support the different ‘stumbling blocks’ the children face."

Lou Salza's curator insight, February 8, 2013 4:01 PM

The iPad can be a brilliant motivational tool for children in the classroom. The ease-of-use, coupled with the speed that you can get results means that it can be the perfect tool for integrating into your literacy planning. And, as many schools don’t have 1:1 tablet computers it can also mean that the collaborative and group aspect of the technology can be harnessed.

term.ly, crafting words. An online dictionary, thesaurus.

 

"term.ly is a way to explore the English language. It is a semantic reference. A dictionary. A thesaurus. A reference tool. Maybe more. Maybe less.

term.ly provides concise definitions and goes beyond standard thesauri by providing related words that scale the hierarchy of language, allowing you to browse to more and less specific terms, and through relationships like 'member of', 'parts', 'similar to', etc.
