The unde­rlying pedagogi­cal methodology­ for this appli­cation is to te­ach students le­tters as well a­s to teach them­ how to combine­ letters into w­ords. A student­ is offered eit­her/both a visu­al prompt or/an­d audio prompt ­to "write" a wo­rd. The word is­ to be ‘written­’ by dragging a­ppropriate lett­ers one at a ti­me in the desig­nated slot in t­he correct orde­r. Success is r­ewarded by a sh­ort fun game.
