Based on our incredibly popular talking word processor, the WriteOnline App provides secondary school students with age-appropriate support throughout the writing process.
WriteOnline is used in schools around the world to help students of all abilities develop their writing skills and confidence.
"It is functional, it is clever and it will really help contribute towards improving pupils’ writing, which is so key to their success across the curriculum."
- John Dabell, Teach Secondary Magazine
"WriteOnline is part of a continuum of writing supports that students can use throughout their school years and beyond. It offers a multi-tiered system of supports from contextual word prediction to subject area prompts. WriteOnline is a sentence builder but it’s also a confidence builder."
- Jill Goodman, Appolearning
REVIEW WRITING WITH CLEAR SPEECH
When students punctuate a sentence in WriteOnline, their work is read back to them. Research shows that this active engagement with text encourages students to find and correct errors for themselves.
DEVELOP VOCABULARY AND SPELLING WITH WORD PREDICTION
The intelligent word predictor suggests words that fit the context of students’ writing, encouraging them to use more adventurous vocabulary and helping them to create flowing, grammatically correct text with accurate spelling. There's even a talking spellchecker!
BUILD WRITING CONFIDENCE WITH WORDBARS
Wordbars provide tabbed vocabulary support for any subject or topic - just tap a word to add it to the document. Make your own Wordbars with alphabetical or labelled tabs, and use the free, ready-made Wordbars on our LearningGrids site, readily accessible from within the app!
CHECK WORDS BEFORE THEY ARE USED
Learners can even listen to words before they write them, helping them to find the word they want and achieve writing success. Any word in the predictor or Wordbar can be heard before it is used by using our unique Sound Shift tool.
SHARE YOUR DOCUMENTS AND WORDBARS
Print your work to any Airprint-compatible printer, or share it via email, AirDrop, Dropbox, WebDAV or Google Drive.
NO INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED
Access the WriteOnline App's fantastic support features anytime, anywhere, with no need for an Internet connection.
PERSONALISED SUPPORT FOR EVERY STUDENT
Change how the app looks and acts to meet each student’s learning needs. Available options include changing the speed and frequency at which the app speaks, customising the word predictor level and using high contrast colour schemes.
WRITING TO BE PROUD OF
Whatever your students’ current levels, watch their confidence grow and their motivation soar as they experience writing success across the curriculum! Print your work to any AirPrint-compatible printer, or share it via email.
