RecorderPEN is a revolutionary technology which brings multiple languages, sounds, songs and interactivity to the printed page! A fantastic new way to enhance literacy skills. The new RecorderPEN lets you make, save and playback recordings at the touch of a page. There are a huge range of resources, including books, posters, learning systems and recordable stickers. See below for further details.
"EAL Gold-dust" Teach Primary!
"They have all without exception loved it!" Teach Primary!
"What an innovative idea...encourages conversation and thinking skills" Practical Pre-School Gold Award
By touching 'sound spots' on books and charts with RecorderPEN, children and teachers can access pre-recorded narrations in languages of their choice (over 20 languages, including Polish, Somali, Sylheti etc). One pen can be used again and again on books, charts and cards, simply by downloading new language files from our website.
See children's eyes light up when they hear a story read in their home language. Give teachers and assistants the resources to communicate directly with an EAL child.
RecorderPEN supports a whole range of learning styles, as the kinaesthetic aspect of physical exploration of the page complements strong aural and visual elements. The pen can store hours and hours of audio content, and the gaming function allows for quizes, puzzles and activities to extend the enjoyment of reading. The new, blue RecorderPEN has all the functions of the original, purple CrayonPEN, but it also allows children to record their own voices and save them onto every page of our newest books, improving their speaking and storytelling skills. Parents and teachers can use the new pen to make recordings for children.
There are RecorderPEN resources tailored to all age groups, from phonics resources for the Foundation Stage and Reception, through literacty toolkits and Key Subject Terms Explained for Primary and Secondary, to Birdvoice and the Audio Travel Phrase Book for adults. RecorderPEN has recently won a Practical Pre-School Gold Award and is shortlisted for NASEN's ICT Inclusivity Award 2008.
