How can technology transform learning?

Our education system relies on students being able to:

  • Read to gain knowledge

  • Write to express what they have learned

  • Be assessed by recalling and writing under time pressure

As a result, anyone struggling with literacy, is automatically at a disadvantage across the whole curriculum.

Literacy is not the same as intelligence

Schools often confuse literacy for intelligence. Dyslexics, despite often being extremely bright, frequently believe they are stupid and give up on education. As a result, talent goes unrecognised and individuals do not achieve their potential.
There are numerous examples of talented dyslexics who struggled profoundly at school but went on to live extraordinary lives. Take a look at our encouraging videos.


Technology enables students to learn and progress without being restricted by their difficulties with reading and spelling. This applies from early years education, to students studying at university and beyond in the workplace.
