What is Pocketalk? The Translation Tool Explained

by Staff


Pocketalk devices are translation tools about the size of a phone that provide near real-time translations in 82-plus languages. Students can carry these in their pockets and simply press a button and speak when they want to translate something or have something a teacher tells them translated. 

Pocketalk devices are being utilized in more than 1,000 schools across the U.S., including the Gervais School District in Oregon, which has more than 40 devices on loan to various students and families. Dr. Creighton Helms, director of student services and federal programs at Gervais School District, says translation tools are vital in the district because more than 40 percent of students are multilingual learners.
