The ExamReader was recently highly commended in the Digital Devices category at the Bett 2019 Awards after over three years of being on the market. The pen has been continuously optimised and updated and this accolade is just a confirmation of Scanning Pens’ hard work.
The Bett awards, produced in association with Besa, are considered the leading global education technology awards. Having UK Education Minister Damian Hinds attend the ceremony reinforces the respect this accolade has.
The ExamReader is a user-friendly scanner that reads printed text aloud. It’s the perfect replacement for a human reader, helping build the confidence and independence of any student. Scanning Pens are working hard to break down the barriers in exams and around dyslexia and other reading difficulties so that students are able to reach their full potential.
At a recent conference Jack Churchill, the CEO & Co-founder of Scanning Pens, highlighted the importance of dyslexia assessments and exam accommodations to show the depth of each students’ knowledge.
He said “The point of exams is to ensure students are test on their knowledge of a given subject, not their ability to read. Assistive Technology like the ReaderPen and ExamReader can enable students to read exam questions themselves which develops independent and confident people fit for work”
Throughout 2019 Scanning Pens will continue to push against the barriers people face in their exams, with huge changes coming to the ExamReader soon.
