Writer's Hat is an ideas generator to inspire creative writing, oral literacy and imaginative thinking. Whilst aimed at classroom teachers and educators, it could easily be used for family fun, camp activities and party games.
Do your students need help generating ideas for creative story writing, storytelling and interesting sentence and paragraph construction? Then use the Magic Writer's Hat to generate ideas. Often students are asked to write a creative piece of work but are left scratching their heads for ideas. The Writer’s Hat app allows students to have four basic elements of their story selected randomly for them. They will be provided with an idea word for What, Where, Who and When to include in their story. Often it is a springboard of random words that can be all it takes to allow the mind to think creatively.
Not inspired by the options presented? Simple, just press again, or reset to start from scratch.
Use the random 'Word Box' for creative writing as well as other imaginary thinking activities and creative thinking tasks. The application randomly uses nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs to help students generate ideas. Use the words to help take learning to another level.
Creative teachers will develop many a great use for this app.
