PENpal - recorder pen technology which brings multiple languages, sounds, songs and interactivity to the printed page! A fantastic way to enhance literacy skills. PENpal, (the newest and most pwerful version is basically an MP3 player that reads and plays back sounds when it touches and recognises digital ‘hot spots’ and also lets you make, save and playback your own recordings at the touch of the PEN. There is a huge range of resources, including books, posters, learning systems and recordable stickers.


Talking or Pen-enabled, Books have ‘hot spots’ embedded in their pages which can be ‘read’ by the Recorder PEN. The growing number of new Recorder Books are even more versatile as users - teachers, children and parents - can record, save and if necessary, re-record text, music or sounds to play back on every page.

This is a fantastic way to improve speaking, listening and storytelling skills Children can re-tell the stories in books, and with recordable Talking Stickers, they can add content to anything else: posters, other books, charts, puppets...even furniture, fixtures and fittings around the room or building. As well as voice, music and sound effects can also be recorded to enrich the experience.


PENpal supports a whole range of learning styles, as the kinaesthetic aspect of physical exploration of the page complements strong aural and visual elements. The PEN can store hours and hours of audio content, and the gaming function allows for quizzes, puzzles and activities to extend the enjoyment of reading. PENpal. holds up to 4 Gb worth of audio files and is rechargeable.


This extremely exciting resource can be used in countless ways. For example, it's fantastic for EAL: parents can record in their own language for their children, and teachers can customise their resources to make them fully inclusive. There are products for children aged 4 - adult, and the Talking Stickers can be used to customise resources for any age-group -- they're even useful for adult learning. 


In order to use the PENpal with a Talking or Pen-abled Book or other publication such as a Talking Poster the relevant audio file must be installed on the PEN. Audio files* are a separate item which can be purchased either with each book or later as required. After purchase links to audio files are sent by email and then downloaded to the computer before being simply transferred to the pen via the USB cable provided.

(*Additional audio files for your PEN can be purchased at any time, for instance when a new book is ordered. It is important to note here that Audio Files are expensive to produce and are therefore not available for every book especially titles/languages for which there is not a great demand).


Customers are strongly advised to check with us whether an Audio File is available, assuming they want one, before ordering specific book(s). each bilingual book is excellent in its own right and does not necessarily have to be – and may not have been published as a Talking Book. Customers with sufficient language skills can of course make any book into a Talking Book if they wish by creating their own Audio Files using the Digital Stickers as described above.


.LET THE WHOLE CLASS HEAR WHAT’S GOING ON!

A mains powered portable speaker unit is available which works with a transmitter unit carried by the teacher on a belt. The whole class can now hear what is being said. This would be ideal, for example, for use with a Big Book which has been Talking Pen-enabled by you.

You can go back at anytime and edit anything you have previously recorded or perhaps use a different child to remake the recording. PRICE of the complete system is around £200 + VAT


START. Each publication has an arrow pointing to ‘Start’ which tells the pen which title it is ‘reading’ but if the relevant audio file has not been loaded as described above the PEN will not react.


LANGUAGE. As the published books are bi-lingual a Language ‘button’ is also provided so that the reader can choose whether to hear the text in English or the alternative language. The user selects the language which they want to hear by touching the language ‘button’ with the pen until it ‘speaks’ in the required language.


There is also a mode button on the pen which allows the user to flip instantly between English and the selected foreign language being used.
