Crick Software’s writing support software, WriteOnline, now includes WorkSpace, a visual mind mapping tool that enables students to organise their thoughts and ideas into diagrammatic format before they start to write.
WorkSpace’s intuitive layout means that students can start creating mind maps straight away, and because it is fully integrated into WriteOnline, children still benefit from WriteOnline’s speech feedback, word prediction and Wordbar support as they work.
When students are ready to start writing, with just a couple of clicks they can transform their mind map into an outline document or Wordbar, enabling them to develop a highly structured and logically coherent piece of work.
“Creating a mind map is an excellent way for students to structure their thinking before a writing task,” said CEO John Crick. “With the addition of WorkSpace, WriteOnline now supports students through the entire writing process, from recording their initial ideas to independently checking the finished document."
WriteOnline is Crick Software’s writing tool for learners of all abilities from upper primary school to adults. For those who find writing difficult, WriteOnline offers more support than any other word processor. The software can be used online and on CD too, giving users the option to install it on their computers, while enjoying the freedom to use the program anywhere else simply by logging in.
The resource has won four major awards in the first 12 months of its release.
