Digtal Focus Reading Card provides an overlay window that you can customise so that the learner can use the configuration that works for them. In order to evaluate this I would need to try with some pupils and get their reaction . It’s a very simple tool which is good as no pre-learning is required in using it.
- You can use it to guide reading
- You can change the overlay colour
- Use it on your usual software
The authors have sent me this comment about tablets:-
“You may be interested to know that the innovative capabilities of the Reading Focus Cards application to “float on top” AND “stay on top” of nearly any underlying application cannot yet be supported by most mobile technologies (only portable laptops/notebooks at this time). However, we are monitoring hardware upgrades and potential capability (for iPads, iPhones, Android devices, etc.) for possible future versions.”
