about: iSmart project aims to digitally expand the dyslexic pupils memory. To reach this objective the project aims at developing a software that enables transfer of text and other study materials from the classroom to a smart device that the student have access to.

Interactive learning approaches and classroom smartboards combined with personal light yet powerful tablet computers will facilitate learning in the classroom while improving by large the learning possibilities and motivation for students who find their learning life difficult due to the complications being presented by the condition of dyslexia.

ICT is a key tool to help dyslexic learners in the classroom in both learning and teaching experiences as well as accessing or recording written information.
