Cumbria Schools invited to try out the latest DfE approved handwriting App


Schools in Cumbria are invited to try one of the latest DfE approved apps, Kaligo, at the IMET exhibition next week, 13th and 14th March 2020.


Penrith, Mar 2, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - Schools in Cumbria are invited to try one of the latest DfE approved apps, Kaligo, at the IMET exhibition next week, 13th and 14th March 2020.  The IMET exhibition brings together teachers from across Cumbria and is an ideal opportunity for teachers who were unable to travel to London for BETT to see the latest EdTech solutions available.  This year the event is being held in two locations, Barrow in Furness on Tuesday, March 13th, and Penrith on Wednesday 14th.

Kaligo was one of just six apps nationwide approved by the DfE following a competition to find the best quality educational apps for young children.  A panel of experts has approved six expert-approved smartphone and tablet apps to help parents support their children with reading, writing and speaking.

Kaligo, is a handwriting app which combines years of neuroscientific research with the latest AI technology.  Children use a stylus and tablet to trace letters through colourful and intuitive screens, which most children are already familiar with.  This makes the task of handwriting more exciting, Kaligo then stores the data so parents can easily monitor their child's progress. 

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said:

"The first few years of a child's life are crucial in equipping them with the skills needed for the classroom, and we are working with families to make it easier to weave early learning into daily activities.

"We know that the majority of families are using technology in fun and visual ways to support their child's early education, but it can be difficult for busy parents to work out what content is best.

"This list of expert-approved apps helps them make confident decisions that benefit their child's language and literacy skills."

This new development is set to revolutionise how younger children learn the fundamentals of handwriting and they receive immediate feedback and correction so handwriting improves quickly.

Talking about the apps, the Department for Education's Independent Expert Panel said that Kaligo is "A really good app to support a child's handwriting development!"

Faisal Hamid, Director at Kaligo explains: "The research from the DfE last month today shows that over half of parents surveyed (52%) played pretend games together or took turns in fun activities with their child every day.  It's wonderful for the Kaligo team that our app has been recognised by the DfE.  Many users are already witnessing the great improvement in handwriting, as well as the joy and fun Kaligo brings to the children.  We look forward to showing teachers across Cumbria the benefits Kaligo can bring to children across the county."

Kaligo will be at both events, in Barrow in Furness on Tuesday, March 13th, and Penrith on Wednesday 14th.

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jul 5, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Jul 5, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jul 5, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Jul 5, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Jul 5, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
