We have an extensive range of assistive learning technology, each packed with features catering to specific literary and educational needs.
Support When You Need It Most
Early adolescence is a critical time in a young learner’s life and at Scanning Pens, we’re with them every step of the way. Our advanced assistive technology is now being used in 70% of secondary schools across the UK, helping students reach their full potential so they can proceed to higher education alongside their friends.
High school is about finding your identity and becoming more independent, however, those faced with learning challenges often need a little extra help in the classroom from an assistant. Our popular ReaderPen is packed with a wealth of features to give students the chance to study and work independently, without the need for frequent supervision.
Benefits of the ReaderPen™:
Reads scanned text aloud for independent studying
Built-in dictionaries to enhance vocabulary
Headphones provide a discreet way to read undisturbed in class
We know GCSE’s can be really stressful, so it’s important the environment is relaxed to ensure students perform at their best. For those with dyslexia, exams can provide additional stress, so that’s where we come in. Our handy ExamReader gives the freedom and confidence to successfully perform in an exam, without the need for a human reader.
How does the ExamReader benefit students?
Students can read and understand questions independently
Thanks to the power of crowdfunding, schools can easily gain access to assistive reading technology, such as the ExamReader and ReaderPen. This essential equipment will help improve a student’s literacy skills and boost their confidence in the classroom. Bluecoat Beechdale Academy is one school that started a campaign to help raise funds for reading pens to be used in their institution.
We’re proud to say we’ve helped thousands of high school students across the UK with learning challenges find their independence in the classroom and beyond. Here are just a few of their amazing stories.
High School Resources
We provide guidance to teachers, exams officers and SENCos to help better understand our pens, so they can support students in the classroom and beyond.
