The site, called Dynamic Worksheets, will include the only multi-discipline, customizable worksheet generator on the web. When completed, the site will allow parents and educators to produce grade-level appropriate worksheets for a variety of subjects that include randomly generated questions and math problems.
As developer Peregrin Marshall explains, Dynamic Worksheets will provide parents and educators with a resource unlike anything currently available online.
“As a parent myself, I’ve used similar sites to print coloring pages and math worksheets. But most of the sites out there are pretty simplistic. They don’t offer a very wide selection and the quality of the worksheets is poor. Workbooks are expensive and can only be used once. We wanted to build something that parents and teachers could use to produce an unlimited number of worksheets with new questions each time. It’s much more cost-effective, and it offers more flexibility than anything out there right now. It will be an especially great resource for homeschoolers.”
Dynamic Worksheets, currently in the prototype phase, is expected to launch this summer, assuming that the team gets the financial support necessary to finish the project. Earlier this year, Dolphin Micro staged an internal competition to determine the direction for its next web application. The company divided its development team into three small groups and tasked each one with conceptualizing, prototyping and promoting its own app, all of which was to be completed within 30 days. At the end of February, each team mounted a “pre-launch”
“We’re really passionate about our idea,” says Dynamic Worksheets project manager Cooper McGoodwin. “And we can’t wait to make the service available. At this point, we’re just trying to get the word out to parents, educators and homeschooling families. We really need their support in order to make Dynamic Worksheets a reality.”
