If you're looking to support older students with their writing - across a range of curriculum areas – don’t forget to explore our WriteOnline and WriteOnline App resources on LearningGrids.
Our latest group of sets includes a number of science and geography Wordbars. Students can write about the Water Cycle with key vocabulary to understand evaporation, transpiration, condensation, precipitation, and accumulation. Glaciers A – Z supports writing about glacial processes and landforms. If students are learning about other countries, Wordbars such as Geography of Japan help them to write about the physical and human geography of the country.
We recently published our 100th WriteOnline App set, and there are almost 300 sets for the desktop version of WriteOnline already on LearningGrids. Did you know that any WriteOnline set can be converted into a WriteOnline App set? If you have a WriteOnline set that you want to use in the app, all you have to do is open the set in WriteOnline and choose “Export Wordbar for App” from the Wordbar menu. You can export the set to a shared folder such as Dropbox and then open it directly on the iPad - use it as is or personalize the set for individual students. It is quick and easy.
Any WriteOnline App set can also be used on the desktop version of WriteOnline. Just save an App set on your computer – WriteOnline App sets can be saved in shared folders such as Dropbox or they can be sent as email attachments. This way students will benefit from WriteOnline’s writing supports when they are working on an iPad or on a computer.
