  • The use of a tablet motivates children to learn. Using the replay button, a teacher can analyse how each child appaches an exercise, which can't be captured when writing on paper.

Why is it preferable to have a tablet with an integrated stylus?

  • Provides the precision to write on a tablet exactly as if writing on paper
  • Tablets with an integrated stylus have a palm management feature
  • This feature lets children write with a stylus and have their hand on the screen without altering the application

  • The stylus

    The stylus

    If the development of the graphomoteur gestures and skills  start with the fingers, the whole learning process of handwriting requires  the use of a pencil at a certain stage. Therefore, for the best learning experience,  Kaligo  encourages  the use of a stylus with a tablet.

    Some tablets are sold with a built-in stylus, this type is recommended because of the precisions and configuration.

    Kaligo is currently made for Android tablets but the iPad version will be available shortly. Try it for yourself and download the free trial version.

    For the best experience, Kaligo workshops need to be run on tablets with an integrated stylus. Some tablets come with integrated stylus and this is the type we recommend.

  • Pencil grips

    Some stylus have not been created for a child's grip, which is why we recommend to use our pencil grips that are adapted and created for their styluses.
