At this month’s Bett Show, assistive-technology experts Conversor will be launching their new Notetalker app, which will allow students and teachers to record audio, bookmarks and images in the classroom. With this resource, everything from the lesson’s discussion to guided reading and Science experiments can be easily captured in detail. Bett 2016 will be taking place from 20th - 23rd January at ExCeL London, and the Conversor team will be hosting Stand G83.

Notetalker was designed with ‘three Rs’ in mind: Record, Review, Revise. After recording a lesson, students and teachers are able to review their classroom progress with the simple playback feature. Finally, users can revise the information using the Notetalker Edit software, where both educators and learners can add detail such as text-based notes, PowerPoint slides and further audio recordings.

“As a former teacher, I know how important it is to get the opportunity to attend shows like Bett to see the latest technology and how it fits into pedagogy,” said Conversor education director Adam Pearce. “Conversor will be providing practical classroom examples at our stand at Bett, which should give teachers some real food for thought.”

The resource is suitable for both Primary and Secondary schools, and enables the creation of easy to use revision materials, projects and evidence for students who may find it challenging to put pen to paper. It is also ideal for pupils with special education needs (SEN) such as dyslexia and problems with vision.

The app allows for an unlimited amount of audio bookmarks which, along with photos, users can add on the fly. Notes can be organised and categorised, while the sound and visuals during recording can be fully customised. The Notetalker app is available for iOS and Android mobile devices, while the more expansive Notetalker Edit is available for Windows and Mac computers.

“Using Notetalker has definitely made me feel more confident about my approach to notetaking,” said student Ashley Beaty. “I can still makes notes but it is very reassuring to know that Notetalker is recording when I get confused. The ability to add photos and bookmarks are great features as I can find a specific moment easily if I don't want to listen to the entire recording.”
