With C-Pen, your students get a tool that empowers them and helps them read, understand and learn independently.
Whether it is dyslexia, visual impairments, aphasia, or anything else, a reading disability is challenging. Though the world is very digital, not a day goes by without facing situations where we must decode text printed on paper. Schools may prep students with digital content, a computer, and speech software. Or perhaps a human reader at exams. But it is all special arrangements, and there are still countless situations where your students are on their own. C-Pen Education products are designed to promote active independent reading, understanding, and learning.
Easier to learn and understand
By using ReaderPen, your students become more independent regardless of which reading disability they are struggling with. Using ReaderPen’s speech synthesis, they can scan specific words or sentences and then listen to them. With the built-in dictionary, students can also get definitions of particular words that make it easier to understand the text. That makes ReaderPen a helpful tool in language studies and in geography, history, and solving text-based math problems. As a teacher, the benefits for you are that you can free up valuable time when you don’t have to spend so much of it helping students to read or understand. Because empowered with ReaderPen, they succeed on their own.
A helpful tool for EAL-students
For students, regardless of if they have a reading disability or not, learning English can be a challenge for those that don’t’ speak it as their mother tongue. With LingoPen, students in English as a second language (EAL) can get words that are hard to pronounce read aloud or translated with Lingo Pen’s built-in dictionary. By letting students use these learning tools, the teacher can focus more on teaching that benefits the whole class rather than individual students. And the students on their hands will feel more confident when they don’t have to ask for help all the time.
Level the odds in tests and exams
A reading disability can make it harder to read, understand and learn. But it can also be an obstacle when it’s time to show what you know. Although there are oral exams, you must be able to read and understand the questions most of the time. With ExamReader, a student can scan and listen to a question, making it easier to understand. The device is only for reading support and doesn’t have any features to help the student answer it. It is more like if the student had help from an SEN Teacher, reading the questions aloud. Using ExamReader is both time-saving and cost-saving, as the school doesn’t have to assign a teacher, and the student can be in the same room as the other participants. Note that local rules may apply regarding the use of special aid during exams. Contact your local authorities for more information about what’s applicable in your region.
