Scanning Pens recognised once again

For the third year running, Scanning Pens has been announced as a finalist for the 2019 Bett Awards, which recognises innovative and creative education technology solutions.

Scanning Pens has been nominated in four categories:

• Special Educational Needs Solutions
• Digital Devices
• Exporter of the Year
• Company of the Year (More than £3m)

The Bett Awards provides a showcase of resources and companies that seek to provide educators with the information, ideas and inspiration that are fundamental to the learning process.

Each year, the Bett Awards highlights some of the best that the global education technology space has to offer, with a celebration of the most innovative and creative solutions and products available.

This year has been another successful year for Scanning Pens, which has also recently launched a research study on the use and impact of Scanning Pens by students. This research was independently carried out by Bath Spa University and revealed a significant increase in understanding by learners when tested on their reading comprehension.

“We’re delighted to be shortlisted for an impressive four Bett Awards this year and see this as testament to what a fantastic resource the ReaderPen and ExamReader pen truly are,” said Jack Churchill, CEO and founder of Scanning Pens

He also commented on the importance of supporting schools with the use of this technology.

“The latest Department for Education guidance challenges schools to develop teaching practices to support access, inclusion and improved learning outcomes for all. Scanning Pens is proud to enable schools to meet this challenge with the launch of the Implementation Guide which is aimed to help schools manage new assistive technology and to increase learning outcomes for students.”

Winners of the Bett Awards will be announced on 23 January 2019.
