If you have ever taught middle school students about pen and ink drawings, you know that it can be a challenging process. The dark and light areas, the overlapping, the craftsmanship… the skills can be difficult to learn and there are lots of mistakes before they get it right. The app TypeDrawing, available for Apple and Android, helps make it a little easier. The app is easy to learn and fun to use. You simply type in the text that you want to draw with and, as your finger moves across the screen, your drawing comes to life. Adding depth and value is as simple as layering the letters. Check out this edshelf video to see it in action.
