I-Pods and Reading

December 6, 2010

About 10 years ago, I made a comment to our then support teacher that I thought that some kids would benefit from listening to a book while reading it.  She disagreed and today I still have teachers that disagree with my thoughts.  However,  research has proven me accurate and the Read 180 uses audio versions as well in their program.  So I went out and bought shuffles and subscribed to Audible.

Have they made a difference?  I think so.  The kids are keeping up with the reading and they are comprehending.  Are they following along in their books?  I don’t know.  I do know that they are doing better in class and they are improving their listening skills.

Just a thought.
