The Pocket Learner
The Pocket Learner was developed in London, UK by parents of a child with learning difficulties. They held the conviction that their little girl could achieve more than she was being offered in school.
The frustrations of the parents and observations of other people in similar situations gave birth to the development of the Pocket Learner.
In a Nutshell
The Pocket Learner Educational Development system uses three elements to promote learning: images, written words and rewards. The cards slot in and out of the book creating a fun way for adults and children (aged 3-12) to interact in order to develop vocabulary and learn to read. It is a particularly useful tool for those deemed slow learners and/or those diagnosed with learning difficulties.
Children enjoy the flexibility of the Pocket Learner which has an ever expanding list of themes and the ability for users to develop their own themes. Consistent use of the programme leads to increased and rapid learning, raised aspirations and greater confidence.
The Pocket Learner has won three awards:
International European Women Inventors & Innovators Network Awards (2015)
Special Recognition Award for Ingenious & Innovative Achievements
British Invention Society - World Invention Awards (2014) Silver Medal
British Female Inventors and Innovators Network International Special Recognition Award (2014)
The Pocket Learner System can be applied to the learning of a range of subject areas and be used by individuals who simply embrace another way of learning. It is useful not only to children with disabilities but also to any child or adult with learning and reading issues.
The Pocket Learner is a great complementary educational tool, fitting into nursery and primary school settings beautifully. It is user-friendly and effective and has been endorsed by a number of practitioners, parents and carers.
