CONCEPT: A simplified keyboard for young writers using teh iPad.
DELIVERY: Keedogo and Keedogo Plus are a pair of brilliant keyboards that can be downloaded as apps and added to the available keyboard options via Settings on your device. This means that, once installed, they will function in ANY other app that uses the on screen keyboard interface!
Aimed at younger learners, or those with special educational needs, these keyboards have a number of brilliant features:
- they are brightly coloured
- the keys are larger
- the vowels are highlighted in a different colour
- they show lower case rather than capital letters
- QWERTY or ABC layouts can be selected
- they don't suffer from auto-correct
The Keedogo Plus version also incorporates a great multi-word prediction tool and auto-capitalisation.
Seriously - what more could you ask for?
LIMITATIONS: Also English is the only language supported at present.
CONCLUSION: I sometimes use the word essential in reference to apps but this really is something ALL iPad classrooms with younger students could benefit from.
Well, every single app that's used for writing!
