Overall Rating

Engagement Would it motivate students and hold their interest? Is it visually appealing? Would it inspire teachers to try something new or change their instruction?

Choosing from 16 fun, quirky writing textures and 28 writing paper backgrounds makes Touch and Write lots of fun, while the monster-and-cupcake guides and rewards continue the interesting design throughout the tracing experience.

Pedagogy Does the tool help teachers promote a more student-centered experience? Will students gain conceptual understanding or think critically? Does it deepen teachers’ pedagogical thinking?

Useful letter, number, and word tracing, or individualized writing practice via custom word lists. The guides won't let kids trace incorrectly, as they respond to errors by deleting tracing back to the last correct step.

Support Can students and teachers get assistance when they need it? Is it created with people of different abilities and backgrounds in mind? Is learning reinforced and extended beyond the digital experience?

Touch and Write provides no data on letters, numbers, or words completed, time spent on app, or common errors. Tutorial found in the "info" section alongside promos for the developer's other apps.
