Penpals for Handwriting

Penpals for Handwriting Second Edition, is a new revised series of resources following up on the internationally best-selling series of Penpals first Editions. Penpals is a whole school handwriting scheme for 3 to 11 year olds.

Alternative View was asked to design and develop 8 DVD-Roms. The interactive content was also designed so it can be delivered on the internet in the future.

A data base and admin panel was developed using the Laravel PHP Framework so Cambridge editors could add the text, image, audio and video content themselves. The front end app, including the interactive whiteboard tools, was created using Angular Dart and then wrapped for DVD-Rom using Electron Shell.

Penpals was shortlisted for a Bett Award 2017 in the Primary Digital Content category
