The BoomWriter App provides schools with an online writing platform. It is a quick and easy app to use for both adults in schools and parents at home.
We looked at BoomWriter and these are our thoughts:
We love this fantastic digital writing platform that is affordable, easy-to-use, and accessible for parents, pupils, and staff.
It removes the need for paper-based writing books for remote learning. All work is saved on the platform for teacher, parents, and classmates to review.
We like the reward system which encourages children to write.
Pupils have their own login information to share their own writing with school and so that they can comment about the books that they are writing.
We like the fact that you can see how the child’s writing has progressed throughout their time at school.
We love the fact that schools and parents can purchase a published book of their children’s writing.
We think the children will love the opportunity to gain digital rewards for writing and to be able to create avatars.
An online writing platform that inspires engagement in the writing process
Schools can choose from a range of Book Packs (and adapt them to meet their needs). These Book Packs will include resources to support schools to plan their writing projects. Schools can also use GoWrite+ for individual writing activities that do not have a published outcome, but still support the features of BoomWriter™ - designed to support remote learning. Schools can use BoomWrite to enhance their current writing provision and build it into existing curriculum.
The BoomWriter App is perfect for remote and in-class learning. Beautifully produced visual literacy resources ensure children have a high-quality writing experience. It saves time and money for the school by removing the need for paper-based writing books for remote learning.
The reward system encourages children to write, pupils can share their work easily amongst their peers, and BoomWriter™ supports the drafting purpose. It also provides personalised paperback books at the end of the project.
The BoomWriter app has been incredibly effective at engaging pupils at home and in school.
During these unusual times, we have been able to encourage all children to partake in the class Leavers Book.I have found the site incredibly accessible, as have the children.
They have particularly enjoyed star casting each other's work (the anonymous feature is a brilliant way for all entries to be judged fairly).
I feel confident and enthusiastic about embracing further writing projects in the future. Many thanks."
