15 Great Audiobooks for Helping Kids Read Better ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 Great Audiobooks for Helping Kids Read Better ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Audiobooks | Scoop.it
The puzzling question that is often posed when talking about audiobooks' integration in the teaching and learning of literacy is whether they have the same cognitive benefits as the actual reading. In other words , can listening to audiobooks be considered reading? Well, the answer does require a rigorous scientific study; however, what is certain here is that listening to audiobooks and reading both require serious engagement with the content for deep and critical understanding to take place

SLS Guernsey's curator insight, November 8, 2014 8:54 AM

Audio books are a really important tool to encourage reading for pleasure. Take a look at this because it also gives links to free audio resources. 

Cheryl Turner's curator insight, November 8, 2014 1:01 PM

5 Reasons to Choose Audiobooks for Students With Dyslexia

5 Reasons to Choose Audiobooks for Students With Dyslexia | Audiobooks | Scoop.it

"Students with dyslexia and other disabilities benefit from reading text while listening to a narrator. This is not the only instructional strategy needed to build reading competence, but it helps bridge a common gap. For students who struggle with decoding letters, their skill slows when it comes to deriving meaning from text, acquiring vocabulary, and becoming fluent readers.

Why Audiobooks? Working together, reading print while hearing those words read aloud can aid word recognition, vocabulary exposure, and decoding skill, says AIM-VA partner Learning Ally...Teachers should select those instructional techniques that minimize high frustration and that increase their joy when reading."
