iPads and reluctant writers

Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org: iPadifying the Writing Workshop – Part 1

“One of my students,” shared the 5th grade teacher whom I was interviewing for a podcast, “has trouble filling up the page. He just can’t do it. It’s too much. But, when writing on the iPad, using the on-screen keyboard, he can. He can type a few words at a time in the small space and pretty soon, he’s written a page. That’s amazing.”

There is a writing app called iA Writer for the iPad and iPhone/iPod touch that has a focus mode, where it only shows a few lines at a time. I wonder if that would help too?

Are there applications for other devices that have a focus mode? (Besides iA Writer, which has a Mac version. 🙂
