CardMaster™ Card Reader
Reading coaches, teachers and speech pathologists trust the proven, reliable technology of the CardMaster™ Card Reader to enhance ESL/ELD, supplemental reading materials, speech-language therapies, foreign language acquisition and special education applications.
Children's reading and writing skills develop in a wide variety of ways, and our card reader offers a special audiovisual method that targets the needs of many. Action Fundamental cards enable students to link visible letters with the sounds they hear played back through the Cardmaster. This repeated, multi-modal, kinesthetic, visual and auditory reinforcement helps solidify mental connections between the written and spoken word and is a useful teaching tool for assessment and literacy training.
Made with rugged, durable ABS plastic, the Card Reader and its pre-recorded card programs are ideal for a multisensory, kinesthetic approach to strengthening students' phonics, vocabulary and comprehension skills.
Whether through its built-in mic, a connected monaural headset (2964AV) or a microphone plugged into its ¼” mic jack, the CAR2020 can record up to 12 seconds onto a dedicated teacher or student track for modeling oral fluency and student responses so they can compare their responses to correct pronunciations. The CAR2020 can create a permanent record onto a blank magnetic card or a cassette player connected to its ¼” auxiliary output to chart progress over time and has a hidden teacher record interlock. The CardMaster includes volume control, a built-in handle, skid-resistant pads to prevent sliding, as well as 3.5mm headphone and mic jacks. Teachers can set up the card reader as an independent, self-checking activity in a learning center or it can be used as a diagnostic tool for appropriate intervention.
