"It's easier to get the materials that you need. When you're coming up to exams and you know you need to revise you can just easily download whatever textbook that you work from and I think that for revision purposes it's really important, really good." S, Year 10 braillist, Priestley Smith School.

Parker E-Act Academy logoLoad2Learn is making a difference to dyslexic learners

“I’ve already had one student say to me that she now feels more understood about the issues that she faces.  She said she can just listen to the things now instead of having to struggle to learn them in different ways, so she feels really pleased that she understands more because of the way she can use it.  And she can revise using it as well.” Adam, SENCo, The Parker E-Act Academy

Chris from New College Worcester looking at an accessible image bookLoad2Learn as a research tool for learners

“There's always a question of extension materials, there's always more that some students would devour. I think that this is where visually impaired students are disadvantaged because there are so many good resources now on the internet, resources for active learning which are not accessible to a visually impaired learner so they miss out on a lot of the extension activities which a sighted person would have.” Chris Stonehouse, Vice Principal, New College Worcester.

“The great thing is they could do something that you haven't thought of. You get new ideas about how to produce diagrams, and what looks good and what isn't good.” Stuart, Head of Geography, New College Worcester.

Load2Learn makes it easier for dyslexic learners to access textbooks Learner sat at a PC, wearing headphones and talking to his teacher

“On screen it makes it a lot easier for the students to be able to flick through and look at different things more easily than manipulating a textbook, so it certainly helps from that respect. Also because we can change the view, the brightness on screen, we minimise the glare that normally you would get from a textbook as well, so in that respect learners prefer it.” Claudine, Specialist Teacher, Wolverhampton Grammer School.
