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.
