ScootPad is committed to continuously enhance user experience and student learning based on valuable feedback and suggestions from teachers, parents and students. We are excited to share this update which includes several new features and enhancements:

1) Enhanced Voice/Read-Aloud Feature
We are excited to partner with ReadSpeaker, leader in online text to speech/voice service, to bring an advanced voice/read-aloud solution to students on ScootPad. Students can click the listen/play button and the entire question and answer choices will be read-aloud. The new text highlighting feature enables students to follow the text that is being read (significant enhancement for ELL students).
 
2) Enhanced Voice for Spelling Practice
The new and advanced voice solution is also available for the spelling practice. Students can click the listen/play button to listen to the word and enter the correct spelling. New voice player has not only enhanced the voice quality but is also compatible with all browsers and all devices.
 
3) Restrict Access to the Store
Teachers can now restrict access to the Store for their students 24 hrs a day during week days (Monday – to – Friday). This feature is specifically designed (as per teachers request) to restrict/block students from accessing the store (searching & adding rewards).
 
4) Restrict Access to Send Shoutout Messages
Teachers can now restrict students from sending shoutout messages 24 hrs a day during week days (Monday – to – Friday). This feature is specifically designed (as per teachers request) to restrict/block students from sending shoutout messages to friends during school hours.
Thank you all for your feedback and suggestions. Should you have any questions or feedback, do not hesitate to contact us.
