Leading content search tool netTrekker, designed to support SEN

New to BETT 2010 is the US leading educational search tool, netTrekker. The cross curricular content tool is now aligned to the English curriculum. Students and teachers can now find safe, educator-selected digital resources in netTrekker that are tightly aligned to Government recommendations.

netTrekker includes customised content for students new to English. The search tool easily guides students to resources in multiple languages, and the 'define' and 'translate' functionality ensures learners can define or translate any word on a website with a simple click to ensure they understand what they are reading.

netTrekker's 'read aloud' feature automatically reads highlighted text out loud for additional audio support and reinforcement. It is perfect for special needs learners or students reading below their expected level of attainment.

netTrekker's safe and valuable digital resources will be on show on the TEEM Software Information Point, stand SW7 in the National Hall Gallery. Visitors to the stand will see how netTrekker offers fast and easy access to more than 300,000 digital resources with thousands recently added specifically for the English curriculum. netTrekker's new UK specific site addresses curriculum needs and helps facilitate lesson planning. Using netTrekker, teachers can provide a truly personalised approach to learning by easily finding appropriate supporting resources that match individual student learning needs to use with their learning activity.

"We are thrilled about our continued expansion into the UK and our ability to tailor netTrekker to the English curriculum," said netTrekker's Peter Schneider, International Education Business Manager. "The success of netTrekker is representative of its application to support teaching outcomes. Having these tailored to the UK curriculum is exciting and we are looking forward to continued international growth."

Visitors to stand SW7 will be offered a 30 day free trial. Any licences purchased at BETT will offer 15 months access for the cost of 12 months.
