EDge21 Favorite: Word Mover


ReadWriteThink's Word Mover is a free iPad app that can be used to supplement and reinforce classroom instruction and promote increased student engagement through the use of modern technology.

Word Mover allows kids to create "found poetry" by choosing from word banks and existing famous works. Users can also add new words to create a piece of poetry by moving and manipulating the text.

Features of Word Mover:

  • Multi-user poem storage.

  • User management with the ability to delete or restore.

  • Six poem categories, each with the ability to personalize.

  • Twelve backgrounds for stylizing poems.

  • Helpful how-to information.

  • Auto-saving of poems.

  • Viewing of finished poems for proofreading.

  • Save poems as images.

  • Print poems to a wireless printer.

  • Share poems by e-mail.

Word Mover aims to add creativity and fun to the learning process. ReadWriteThink offers a library of lessons that incorporate Word Mover. See them here.
