A different story!

Students with undiagnosed reading difficulties often struggle to access the curriculum, says Mark Fraser – but EdTech can help unlock their potential!

Can AI improve the way we test literacy?

Teachers are already under a huge amount of pressure in the classroom, so it’s imperative to get as much information into their hands as possible about children’s literacy. New developments in AI technology by Lexplore are paving the way for exactly this. By using AI technology to monitor how a child’s eye moves when reading – in a way that’s quick, easy and fun for the child – it’s possible to gain incredibly detailed insight into how his or her brain is processing text at different levels…

Tracking eye movements to help reading!

Our technology was recently featured on the BBC Evening News where teachers from Freemantle Community Academy in Southhampton discussed how our assessment has revolutionised their view of reading in school, enabling teachers to see within five minutes if children are having trouble with certain words or letters…

AI – A new insight into reading

Our Managing Director Stephen Park and Adam Luxford from Freemantle Church of England Community Academy spoke live on BBC Radio Solent with Julian Clegg about the revolutionary impact that our technology has been having – reducing teacher workload, boosting literacy outcomes and levelling the playing field for those with special needs…

Can AI help to address the literacy skills gap?

At a time when the perils of social immobility are so severe, it’s imperative that we do all we can to ensure no child is left behind. Their best chance is early intervention, which relies on spotting literacy issues at the earliest possible opportunity. This is the only way that time and resources can be used effectively to help students who need the most support in their reading development. And AI encourages a level playing field, ensuring that any support has the greatest chance of success…

Could AI play a role in boosting literacy rates?

The real power of this type of technology is the added dimension it can give schools in sharing information about pupils’ reading with teachers and parents. In our case, the eye-tracking tests revealed examples of children who were not previously identified as having reading difficulties…

How technology helped me cheat dyslexia

The foundation for Lexplore’s algorithms comes largely from data collected by the Kroneberg project, a study that ran from 1989 to 2010 and followed 2,165 Swedish students into adulthood, tracking their reading development and the progression or regression of their disabilities…

The Tech that is helping us to read

Lexplore Analytics has developed AI eye tracking software which assesses a child’s reading ability and provides the results in just a few minutes. The purpose of the software is to save hours of the teacher’s time by suggesting what the reading issue is and helping to analyse whether it’s dyslexia or just the child is struggling with a particular word…
