In May, I reviewed the C-Pen, a handheld device that scans text and reads it out loud. This technology is being used in classrooms across the UK by children who struggle with reading. It is also authorised for use in examinations by the Joint Council For Qualifications. If you use one or you know a child that uses one, I need your help to understand how well it works in supporting literacy skills.
I need your help to understand what you think about it on my latest survey.
With the C-Pen technology being used in classrooms across the UK and beyond, it would appear that this technology is making a difference for children who struggle to read. It provides a quick and convenient way to read out text in a classroom or an exam and it has been linked with increases in confident and independent learning.
At least, this is what I am hearing from the manufacturer, but I haven’t hear from the students that use the technology.
You may be a teacher who has provided this technology in the classroom, or a parent who purchased one for your child or you may be a student who uses the C-Pen everyday: I want to hear from you!
Please could you tell me your thoughts about this technology in the survey below and I will share the results in about a months time?
This is your opportunity to share how well you feel the technology is working and to share your thoughts about what you would like to see change in the future of this technology. The survey is anonymous, there is no request to get your contact details and your feedback will help Scanning Pens in their development of future products.
