86 per cent of UK teachers would recommend LeapFrog’s LeapReader to parents as a means of helping their children read and write.
The result follows a survey conducted by the educational toy brand and iChild, who worked with 100 schools across the UK.
Together, the partnership provided 200 teachers with the Leapreader device to use in classrooms with kids aged between four and eight, including SEN pupils.
After a two-month trial, 86 per cent of teachers said they would recommend LeapReader to parents, while 79 per cent said they would also recommend LeapReader to fellow teachers.
“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.
Tony Hicks, chief international officer at LeapFrog, added: “The feedback from our research with iChild truly highlights LeapReader as a key, teacher approved player and we will continue t work with a wide network of teachers across the UK to highlight its unquestionable educational value and the supportive learning role it can play n the home.”
