BETT Special Educational Needs Award 2019 Finalist

For the second year running, Scanning Pens has been nominated for the Special Educational Needs Bett award. On the 23rd of January 2019, we will be attending the awards ceremony in London as finalists for multiple different awards.


The popular C-Pen Reader was released just under two years ago and has proved to be incredibly popular around the globe. Its ability to read aloud words and lines of text unlocks a world of potential in the educational system for struggling readers and learners of English as an additional language.


Our focus on independent learning and improving the way of working in the class room has allowed the ReaderPen to become a much requested and respected global assistive technology. The ReaderPen’s regular innovations and updates have made sure we are able to see what our customers need to improve their reading experience. This portable discreet device has empowered students with a freshly positive attitude to their work, allowing teachers to focus on the class as a whole.


Throughout 2018 we gathered feedback from all over the globe talking about the huge boost in confidence, independence, and a feeling of inclusion students now have when studying in the classroom. Moving forward into 2019 we plan to concentrate further on breaking down the barriers and stigmas around assistive technology in the classroom.
