I CREATE THE ALPHABET
Create your own fully personalised alphabets with:
• Your own words
• Your own images
• Your own videos
• Your own voice
Create up to four fully personalised alphabets with different themes fully tailored to their own ability, interests and language:
• One for each of your children, even Mum and Dad
• Things I Love
• People and Places
• Words I can say
A pre-set alphabet means you are up and running even before you add your own words and the app uses a dyslexic friendly font throughout (http://dyslexicfonts.com).
• Use your child’s own words rather than the usual pre-set ones that may have little meaning for your child: no more M is for Mother – M is for Mummy, Mama, or Mum.
• Add your child’s own name and photo or video: F is for Finn, L is for Lucy.
• Build alphabets in your own accent: whether you are from Liverpool or London, Birmingham or Brighton, Dundee or Devon your alphabet can sound local and relevant.
• Build alphabets in your own language: Scots, Gaelic, Welsh, French, Spanish or Italian.
• Add your child’s entire family and friends: N is for Nana, G is for Grampa, B is for brother.
• Use personal items from your own life instead of standardised objects: Y is for Yacht, X is for X Ray can be Y is for Yummy Yoghurt, X is for Kisses.
• Use colloquialisms, nicknames, place names and nonsense words: W is for Wilow Lane, I is for Iggledypiggledy.
In the Classroom
• Learners can use the mobile device to capture their own alphabet from found objects, challenging them to demonstrate their understanding of the alphabet and language.
• Learners can work independently or as part of a group, inside and outside the classroom.
• Challenge learners to create themed alphabets to tie in with personal interests of learning topics – for example a food A-Z, animals A-Z, emotions A-Z.
• Up to four alphabets can be stored at any one time allowing different groups or up to four learners to share the one device.
I Create the Alphabet allows you to switch between upper and lower case alphabets. Alphabets can also be viewed by swiping between letters or as a slideshow for younger users.
