Product Review of Write My Name
Use Write My Name as a supplemental activity when practicing print skills with younger learners. Kids may find it fun to challenge a classmate to see how many words or letters they can print in a short time span (this is not possible if using a mobile device management system or single iTunes account, as the app records word and letter card completion based on iTunes sign-in). Teachers might also use Write My Name to create a digital portfolio of learners‘ letter formation. Using the fingerpaint mode, learners can capture a word or letter card and save it to the photo roll. Additionally, educators might use the Name Tag mode to help older learners practice class-specific words and names. For instance, classmates names, teacher names, or location names can be loaded with an image or audio clip to help learners with difficulty remembering names of people or locations.
