Texthelp technologies have been designed with Further Education colleges in mind. Our support tools make reading, writing and maths on computers, laptops and tablets easier and more rewarding for students studying many different courses. And that means delivering a richer and more inclusive learning experience that prepares young people for a successful future that lies ahead.
Assistive Technology (AT) in the education space can sometimes get a raw deal. It usually gets singled out as something that only students with special needs require. However, what we’ve learned from Universal Design for Learning is that any student can benefit from AT tools - as it gives them multiple means of representation, expression and engagement that they can choose from to support their unique learning style.
Technology and pedagogy might seem like a mouthful, but there’s a reason the two are often spoken in the same breath. Historically seen as two separate yet complementary strands in teaching, the evolution of tech - as well as how learning institutions have adapted to it - has allowed technology and pedagogy to become more closely aligned, ultimately offering greater possibilities for learning and academic outcomes.
