Students intuitively trace pre-handwriting shapes, uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, words or whiteboard images that you import with the touch of a finger. Hear and see letters with associated images and sounds, which can be customized to relate to your students. Create your own pre-handwriting shapes and word lessons with associated audio for the letters, numbers and words. Add your own images from the photo library, and record your own letter phonetics. The completed lessons can be automatically emailed to the teacher with the student’s tracings and recordings included as a webpage.

Suitable for children to adults, School Writing allows the teacher to prepare lessons using written instructions, unique images and audio instructions, to which the student can respond using written and audio recordings. Students learn shapes, letters, numbers, words and more. This 'open scaffold' enables the lessons to be words, number or symbols and extends the use of School Writing far beyond early education. The ‘Whiteboard’ section allows a teacher to draw or import images to be traced with optional audio answers.

School Writing 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'.

School Writing maximizes the flexibility for a teacher or parent who wants to customize the content. You can create words with missing letters, unique images and unique audio recordings, providing a rich learning environment that can be adapted to your student’s progress. Unlimited activities can be created such as spelling lists, where the student can write the spelling and record the spelling, math problems, circle the vowels, write the opposite, dot to dot and mazes to name only a few. The possibilities are endless and limited only by your imagination.

Teacher tracing allows you to record your own example tracings for each letter and number, which replay when the student taps the ‘Learn’ button. Teacher tracing offers the ability to record audio for letter sounds or tracing instructions. By default, the application has the teacher tracings animations built-in and allows for regional variations of the letter sounds.

Create, save and share your own word lessons, profiles and customizations to suit your own curriculum, with complete control over the management of the lessons, the app and student profiles. Full import and export functions are included for iPad classrooms such as Bluetooth, DropBox, Email and saving to the demografix website for more free lessons.

You can 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.
