Today we are sharing an interesting article written by Mindshift which talks about how one English teacher pushed the Status quo and found that there was a connection between using podcasts as a teaching tool and students wanting to read more as a result.
"Listening to stories does not immediately seem connected to reading, and in fact, readers of MindShift stories about podcasts in the classroom have commented that they don’t offer enough rigor. However, English teacher Michael Godsey discovered that most of his students prefer to listen to a podcast while reading the transcript over listening or reading alone. The combination of audio and text allowed for reading breaks and helped students learning English as a second language connect the text to the sounds."
