The templates can be completed using the iPad or emailed/printed as an image for writing on.

Please Consider

A variety of other apps are available from this developer such as CompareNContrast and Tools 4 Students 2 which contains another 25 templates.
The templates cannot be adjusted or personalised.
Blank or customisable templates are included in Tools 4 Students 2.
Some students may need some support when first using any of the templates to ensure all the necessary information is included and categorised appropriately.
To save completed templates, the user may benefit from access to other compatable apps such as iBooks or Docs To Go. The templates could then be viewed in the device at a later time.

Generalise Skills and Knowledge

The use of templates in writing tasks aims to increase the student’s independent completion of assignments and improve their overall writing structure. Consider adapting some of the provided templates to better suit the individual student.
