Does the Oxford Reading Pen Enhance Reading Accuracy and Comprehension for Students with Reading Difficulties in a Classroom Environment? An Implementation Trial
Johnson, Ian
Kairaranga, v9 n1 p36-43 2008
This article was undertaken to determine whether the Oxford Reading Pen (ORP) could enable students with reading difficulties to read and comprehend text at their chronological age. A small sample of students with reading difficulties was involved in a trial to ascertain the impact of using the ORP within their classroom reading activities. The results gained were positive and the potential of the ORP as an effective complementary tool for classroom use is discussed. The importance of carefully matching assistive technologies to student needs is highlighted as "one size does not fit all." (Contains 4 figures.)
