iDiary for Kids: journaling platform for writing & drawing

Teacher Overview

iDiary is ideal for young children to keep a journal or diary. It allows them to write, draw, and import photos. This app provides a fun alternative to writing in our traditional paper journals each day.

Once students have written a good quality piece and went through the writing process of editing and rewriting, they will be allowed to publish and illustrate their writing using this app.

While iDiary is an attractive app, it doesn't displace DiaryZapp as the Editors' Choice for kids journal apps.

Description

iDiary For Kids is a powerful journaling app for children. It enables them to write creative personal journal entries, upload photos and draw pictures.

iDiary for Kids is an ideal platform for children ages 5-13 to plunge into journaling. Keeping a journal or a diary helps children improve their writing skills, develop their creativity and boost their self-confidence.

Beautifully designed, iDiary for kids has a daily journal at its heart where kids can express themselves periodically writing, drawing, pasting photos. They can easily navigate to their old entries and explore their past musings through an intuitive calendar navigation system.

iDiary not only allows for typing in entries, but also for drawing or writing on the screen with your finger or a stylus. Our drawing engine is the same as our award winning Color & Draw for kids (winner of the Children Technology Review Editor's Award 2010).

iDiary adds a whole new layer of possibilities to journaling, allowing students to easily share the entries that want to showcase while keeping the rest of the diary private.

Users can:

-- easily add photographs
-- decorate with fun stickers
-- share/save their entries

If children get stuck, there are writing voice prompts for inspiration. It also has a photo scrapbook/album and an address book.

Diaries are also password protected for privacy. Journaling has emerged as the cornerstone of writing education. Journals foster self-discovery, independence and writing skills.

Teachers across the world are turning to journal writing as a tool for developing and enhancing their student's writing skills. Research shows that students who write journals become more interested in writing and that the overall quality of their writing improves. Since students are not judged on their writing skills, and are given free rein to express themselves on what is important to them, the use of a journal or diary among students promotes expression, self-confidence and creativity.
