Students interact and write on the touch screen as they respond to PointScribe’s auditory and visual cues which draw their hand, eyes and attention to the writing surface. As they progress through each lesson they hear the name of the shape, see the shape, and write the shape.
...with interactive animations, colors, music, and sounds that engage and hold the attention of even the most challenged student. Students improve their skills, develop muscle memory, build confidence, and have fun as they progress through captivating lessons. All parameters are easily modified to appropriately challenge and keep the interest of each student.
Students hear the name of the shape, see the shape, and write the shape---correctly every time. If the student forms a shape improperly, he is automatically prompted with sound and visuals to restart the stroke. PointScribe is like having a virtual teacher guiding and correcting every student for every stroke of every letter.
PointScribe reports data in easy to interpret charts that let you make assessments in less time, with greater accuracy, and empowers you to provide targeted interventions and design evidence-based teaching strategies that are data driven to achieve maximum student success.
A study published in January 2010 in the Journal for Education in Research demonstrates that PointScribe is highly effective for teaching handwriting skills to children with learning disabilities that may result from autism, ADD/ADHD, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and other challenges. The study also indicates that these gains do translate to handwriting on paper. Click here to learn more.
