From the Developer
Literacy contains the education-approved handwriting fonts used in all UK, US, Australia and New Zealand schools.
Literacy is 'open scaffold' by design. A toolkit that simply delivers.
Create your own lessons (scrolling sentences using our 'Hold and Scroll' approach) with sounds, images and text and have the students respond via writing or recording audio.
Literacy comes packed with example lessons and Whiteboard activities that demonstrate the flexibility of the app. Literacy takes full advantage of the available technologies within the iPad.
Completed lessons can be automatically emailed to the teacher or parent with the student’s tracings and recordings included.
The ‘Whiteboard’ section allows a teacher to draw or import images, with unique audio instructions for tracing or interacting with.
Literacy relies on the ability of the teacher or parent to review the student's work and provide recognition and reward for good work or effort, so the ‘bells and whistles’ are kept to a minimum. This evaluation is assisted with features such as the ‘Reset’ button having a counter; traces that are not automatically erased after the app is closed and traces that can be 'replayed'.
Create, save and share your own word lessons, and profiles, with complete control over the management of the lessons, the app and student profiles. Full import and export functions are included for iPad classrooms including Bluetooth file transfers, save and share via email, web, dropbox and iTunes.
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.
