Research has revealed that 86% of UK primary school teachers would recommend LeapReader to parents to help with their child’s reading and writing.
LeapFrog and iChild worked with 100 schools across the UK, providing 200 teachers with the device to use in classrooms, including special educational needs pupils.
Following a two month trial, 86% of teachers involved in the research project said they would recommend LeapReader to parents. A further 79% would also recommend LeapReader to fellow teachers.
LeapReader has been designed by a team of educational experts to offer three literacy experiences in one – learning to read, learning to write, and learning through listening.
“Technology can be an extremely powerful learning tool and LeapReader is just one example of the kinds of tools that teachers and parents are looking for to help children build a strong foundation for future success,” said Dr. Jody Sherman LeVos, manager of LeapFrog’s Learning Team.
“As teachers look for different ways to engage their pupils, technology is something that children are drawn to and that offers a way to provide personalised learning experiences even in busy and full classrooms.”
