Audiobooks is an amazing  learning tool for people of all ages, who enjoys reading or would like to improve their reading skills.

Craudio's curator insight, December 22, 2014 6:02 AM

Audiobooks in class room:

Introduce students to books above their reading levelModel good interpretive readingTeach critical listeningHighlight the humor in booksIntroduce new genres that students might not otherwise considerIntroduce new vocabulary or difficult proper names or localesSidestep unfamiliar dialects or accents, Old English, and old-fashioned literary stylesProvide a read-aloud modelProvide a bridge to important topics of discussion for parents and children who can listen together while commuting to sporting events, music lessons, or on vacationsRecapture "the essence and the delights of hearing stories beautifully told by extraordinarily talented storytellers" (Baskin & Harris, 1995, p. 376)

Audiobooks increase:

Reading comprehensionMotivationSelf-confidence
Mandy Reupsch's curator insight, December 8, 2015 9:54 PM

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 9, 2014 7:27 PM

Digital literacy and offline forms of literacy are incredibly important. We can find whatever we are looking for online, but does that mean we have the skills to discern whether it is appropriate? I think not.

 

Adults and children can learn together.

This is an excellent article - and I do like the chemistry reference!
