Given the robust nature of learning sciences research, this website is best viewed on tablets and computers. A small screen experience is coming in the future.
On June 22, 2021, we will launch updated strategies for the Math PK-2 model, as well as additional updates to the Navigator that highlight equity, SEL, and culturally responsive teaching. To learn more, visit our Site Updates (available in the "About" menu at the top of any page).
Audiobooks allow learners to hear fluent reading and experience books in a flexible format. Learners can listen to books above their reading level and may benefit from using audiobooks, as they are able to focus on their comprehension rather than decoding the text. Listening to books while reading along can also support Foundational Reading Skills, including for those whose Primary Language is not English.
Use It In Your Learning Environment
Audiobooks allow adults to expand their Literacy Environment and engage with texts where and when they have time, supporting "mobile reading". Encouraging greater exposure to academic and leisure content through audiobooks can support many literacy skills including vocabulary, syntax, and comprehension. To support increased comprehension, instructors can provide listening challenges or guiding questions to focus Attention when listening. Listening to audiobooks can also support Oral Communication Skills, including pronunciation and intonation, from hearing a model of fluent reading.
There are many apps available with large digital libraries of audiobooks for adults, which create more inclusive learning platforms for learners with low literacy skills or low Vision. By allowing learners to listen to texts, readers can have greater access to content to engage in discussion and analysis with peers. Developers can also include prompts for learners to respond to while listening to a text that can encourage deeper engagement.
