Description

Children from age 3-10 can create their own books and at the same time learn how to write and read. The app is developed in cooperation with leading literacy and computer-based researchers, teachers, parents, and children.

This app is for home usage. For schools and kindergartens, we recommend using the "WriteReader Classroom" app.

Researchers concluded that WriteReader:

Results
Following its development and testing, researchers concluded that WriteReader:

• Improves early learning of reading and writing skills
• Motivates children
• Invites cooperation between children and adults
• Encourages children to be creative and imaginative
• Creates interest in the written language

Method
WriteReader is based on scientific research that substantiates children benefit by learning to write whilst they learn to read. By using WriteReader and a little help from an adult, children learn to spell and read in a relevant and meaningful way by creating and writing their own texts.

The child writes a sentence using his or her current level of written language and the adult “translates” the child’s writing into proper or correct text. When the child compares his/her writing with the adult’s, the child begins to observe, assimilate and learn words and syntax. Books created by the children can be printed, e-mailed and posted to social media directly from the app. In this way, the child is inspired to create and understand the practical use of written language. The child enjoys the creative experience and the authoring of his/her own stories.

Features
WriteReader features a specially WriteReaderyboard that incorporates the sounds of the letters. Vowels and consonants are marked in red and blue frames respectively. The keyboard can show both lower and higher case letters to help the child recognize and learn all 52 different letters. Furthermore, the app has a record-and-play function that can help the child remember the written text and serve to support the child by enabling them to play back the audio version of the story at a later point.

Target group
The primary target group is children from 3-10 years of age, but both younger as well as older children can benefit by using the app. Younger children can create books on their own by recording stories that complement pictures taken with the iPad, or with others, by typing more or less randomly on the keyboard and having an adult add the conventional writing afterwards. Older children can use the app as a book template to create longer and more complex books.

Comments
The app has been tested by four children ages 5-8 years old. Parents reported positive results even in the relatively short period of the testing.

“The app is very useful for my children because it allows them to make creative stories on the different levels of development they are in.”
Kara Mann, mother, 4 yr old daughter, 8 yr old son

“The app has been beneficial to our family. The kids have enjoyed it. My daughter has written a lot of things she would not normally have written and the platform enables her to do it with a minimum of help.”
Kim Kimberly, mother of a boy at 5 and a girl at 7

Hvad har vi lige betalt 89kr for??

Kære udviklere - dette er simpelthen for ringe eksekveret: introvideoen virker ikke, der er stort set ingen dokumentation - og vores pode er allerede ved at opgive at prøve app´en sammen med os. Kan I venligst få jeres app til at virke....

Lær at læse - også på engelsk

Superfed app, som vi har haft meget glæde af. Vi prøvede at følge anvisningerne i App-store-beskrivelsen om ændring af sprog - smart at app'en kan bruges både på dansk og engelsk.

Hurra for undervisningsapp, der virker!

Endelig en undervisningsapp, der både er meningsfuld for børnene og fanger dem i en lærerig proces igen og igen. Med app'en WriteReader er min syvårige datter blevet forfatter -i hvert fald hjemme hos os. Med Ipad'en i hånden fotograferer og børneskriver hun små hverdagshistorier, og ja hun laver hele arbejdet selv! Hun er opslugt af "legen" og har først brug for hjælp, når hun til sidst skal have voksenskrevet til siderne. Samtidig bliver både lillesøster (5 år) og lillebror (2 år) inddraget som statister og har derfor mindst lige så stor fornøjelse af at læse de færdige historier.
WriteReader er utrolig brugervenlig for børnene, den har geniale detaljer, som f.eks. talebobler, der gør den færdige bog endnu sjovere at læse. Det er barnets arbejde fra start til slut, og det bliver derfor både en meningsfuld måde at arbejde med ord, bogstaver og lyd på og et meget personligt produkt, som barnet glædes og er stolt over.
Endnu bedre bliver det (for mig), når min datter senere læser lektier i læsebogen og pludselig udbryder: "Se mor, der står fodbold, ligesom jeg skrev i dag." At hun stavede fodbold FOBLT er ligegyldig, det var børneskrivning, og nu kan hun læse ordet.
Konceptet WriteReader er genialt, og jeg kan varmt anbefale denne app til alle børnefamilier, skoler, børnehaver mm. Det er bare med at komme i gang!
