Below are some general ideas that came up for me following the meeting with the reading group.
1. Create a proofreading program that actively and clearly fixes mistakes in writing. The way to fix errors would be to click on the highlighted areas. After clicking on these areas, the program then corrects it (showing the flipping of a "b" to a "d") and provides explanation.
2. Phonics training application. Similar to how musicians have apps that train their ear in relation to pitches that are either flat or sharp.
3. Application that slowly reads words highlighted in a text. Option to sound out words and gradually increase the pace allowing the word to be said fluently.
4. Connect the dots digitally (letter tracing). On a mobile device/tablet where learner can trace letters with their fingers.
