Best Apps for Creative Writing
Through sensitive teaching and plenty of practise, children develop confidence and build up their writing skills throughout their primary/elementary school career. Through a culmination of many language and text-based skills, they become proficient writers, or so we hope! There are many aspects which can help their writing progress but developments in technology have seen a huge resource potential, accelerating children’s progress in this important area of their learning.
Writing for a purpose is key. We as adults generally write for a particular audience, and children are no different. We’re always delighted to receive letters, emails or app reviews from our young app-users…just bear that in mind. Our contact details are at the bottom of this mailer!
Some brilliant (adult and child) writers don’t actually physically write at all. The late Times journalist AA Gill had such severe dyslexia that he was unable to ‘write’ a word. That didn’t stop him from being a very successful ‘writer’. There are marvellous digital tools to aid and support our young writers who struggle with the physical/cognitive process of physical writing. Check out Clicker Connect, one of the best.
Thinking of a story together is a great way to spark ideas of each other and kids with love going on an imaginary journey with you, or in a sibling group. Digital mind mapping tools like Mind Plan are great resources for you to record their ideas as they develop and take shape. Post it notes for words and pictures also work well!
Have fun with creative writing from all of us at Educational App Store.
