Children from primary school

Fonetti in schools

We know that as teachers you’re under pressure right now. There are simply not enough hours in a school day to achieve everything that you’d like to do at the best of times. We know you have a great team in your classroom but how would you like to make better use of their time, particularly with social-distancing high on the agenda? With Fonetti you can.

Fonetti is the reading assistant ready to revolutionise your working day. We’re the world’s first listening bookshop. We’re also accredited by The Department for Education’s Hungry Little Minds Campaign as an approved platform for children to practice their reading. And we’re the only platform that listens to them while they read, that recognises their speech regardless of dialect, accent or native tongue.

We’re the teaching assistant available to every classroom and the technology behind interactive reading. We’re saving schools valuable resource time and we’re also building confidence on an hourly basis.

Reduce your workload

We’re launching our new Fonetti School Portal in January 2021. With the School Portal, you can allocate Fonetti books to a whole class or a single pupil with a simple click. And you don’t need to rely on traditional book logs. Instead you can keep up to date with the progress of every child in your class in one dashboard. Fonetti can tell you: 

  • how long each pupil has spent reading in the app
  • which stories they’ve read
  • the number of times a title has been chosen
  • and their levels of reading accuracy.

This School Portal data has never been available to teachers before – and because it doesn’t rely on subjectively completed reading logs, you know the data is 100% impartial – perfect for tracking and assessment. Designed by Auris Tech, working with the speech recognition experts at the University of Edinburgh, Fonetti can tell the difference between children speaking English as an additional language, those with dyslexia and SEN, so it can support every reader individually and allow them to read at their own pace.

We are currently looking for a small number of schools to become early-adopters of our School Portal, which we launch in January 2021. If you’d like to become an early-adopter and provide free access to your pupils, simply complete the form below and we’ll come back to you as soon as we can.

For millions of children everywhere, life has changed and trusted routines have gone out of the window. But with Fonetti’s help there are still friends waiting for adventures and a reading assistant ready to listen – without needing an adult.

Whether in a den in the garden or by torchlight under a duvet, your children can be transported to other worlds through the pages of a story. With Fonetti they read independently, improve their literacy and boost their self-confidence, wherever they are.

We’re asking a lot of our children right now. Let’s give their imaginations the freedom they need to run wild. 

To support this, we’re offering families with children at primary school the opportunity to read the 100+ books in the main Fonetti library, for free, for 3 months, if they register before the end of 2021.
