LeapFrog Enterprises Inc. has enhanced its LeapPad learning systems with a new LeapPad Record & Play Microphone that enables children to record and play back their own voices for personalized reading of LeapPad books.

Dr. Robert Calfee, the chair of LeapFrog’s Educational Advisory Board, applauds the Record & Play Microphone innovation. “Making it possible for children to record and play back their own voices is important for two reasons: First, it increases their engagement by actively involving them in the learning process, enhancing attention and cognition. Second, allowing children to hear themselves reading and responding is a great motivator,” Calfee said.
