Thanks for using School Writing and helping to make it one of the most popular education apps. We added a fun ‘abc colouring in’ activity as optional on/off via settings.

School Writing contains the education-approved handwriting fonts for each Australian State and NZ, including individual cursive letters. Built by teachers for education and a number one 'learn to write' app for Australia and New Zealand. Purchased over 68,000 times by Australian schools as part of the Apple Volume Education Purchase with a 50% discount.

Teacher must have ***** by Amygrade1
I was looking for a great writing app to use with my class on the interactive whiteboard...this is it! So great! Finally a writing app with Victorian cursive. I will be recommending this to all the parents in my class for individual iPad use also.

A must have for every parent and teacher ***** by mrsnic123
Students just love this app. They love the different colour choices and the replay button. Definitely seen positive results with students with fine motor difficulties. Congratulations on a great app.

Must-Have for all schools ***** by Aunty_Vegemite
Brilliant app that is more than just a hand writing App. It can also be used in just about any curriculum area. Incredibly easy to make my own word lists with pictures and sounds.

School Writing is a fully-customizable and feature-packed app that provides students with plenty of practice to perfect their writing of letters, words and numbers using their correct Australian State school font (and lines) on the iPad. 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, words and numbers with customised associated images and sounds. EduColouring is a plenty of fun, abc colouring activity that aids in developing hand, eye and finger coordination for very young learners.

For the older learners, School Writing allows the teacher or parent to create lessons using written instructions, unique images and audio instructions, to which the student can respond using written and audio recordings. This 'open scaffold' enables the lessons to be words, numbers or symbols and extends the use of School Writing far beyond early education. Completed lessons can be automatically emailed to the teacher or parent with the student’s tracings and recordings included.

With tracing accuracy turned to infants, easy, medium or hard, the students are rewarded with a half or full star depending on their accuracy. They are given three attempts before automatically advancing to the next letter or number. The default teacher tracings can be customised as can the images and sounds associated with each number and letter.

The ‘Whiteboard’ section allows a teacher to draw or import images, with unique audio instructions for tracing or interacting with. Students can trace and record audio answers. ‘Whiteboard’ is the pre handwriting activities.
Create, save and share your own word lessons, student profiles and customisations to suit your curriculum, with complete control over the management of the lessons, the app and the student profiles. Full import and export functions are included for iPad classrooms including Airdrop file transfer, email, iTunes, dropbox or sending the lessons to the demografix website for public access.

The teacher or parent 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. Students have no access to the app settings when a teacher PIN is set. These include setting no student access to the app settings or any access to any external links.

Don’t buy, too basic and dry

For $8.99, this app doesn’t do much. It looks like it was developed by non teaching background people that don’t understand kids. It has all letter standards but lack anything to get the kids to use it. Words courses don’t record accuracy, no structure except some words. The only use of this app is to test your kids if they can trace letters, many free apps does much better job at this for free. The hardness settings are back to front. I doubt a grade 6 can pass the ‘infant’ level. It would serve better to go to the DET website and download the templates, print and get your kids to trace because that is all this app does.

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear that it does not meet your objectives. The app does not have any bells and whistles as it is developed for school use and education. Rewards are often given outside the app by teachers and parents.

Good writing app

A lot of options and a well designed app. Except for the palm guard. My daughter’s palm tends to naturally rest to the right side of the number /letter main writing area and keeps accidentally marking the page which then triggers incorrect try again mode. A lot of writing apps these days let you specify the palm guard as either more to left, right or bottom on the writing to suit the writers palm placement. Just a suggestion. Otherwise keep up the good work.
