Laptops for Exams

Have a look at this from today’s news:

SQA to allow dyslexic students PCs in exams after trial success http://www.theherald.co.uk/search/display.var.1463815.0.sqa_to_allow_dyslexic_students_pcs_in_exams_after_trial_success.php
Children with dyslexia in Scottish schools will be able to sit electronic exams rather than the traditional paper version after a successful pilot scheme. Scotland’s exam body has approved the scheme after a small study found that dyslexic pupils coped better with digital exams using laptops rather than having questions read to them and writing out answers in longhand.  The British Dyslexia Association has welcomed the move, which it said would give new independence to dyslexic learners.

Comments welcome!
