EBMA Board presents status of EBMA and EBMA plans for the future

3:00-3:50  : "What’s Next for Audiobook Supported Learning?" presented by Michele Cobb.

With production of audiobooks and access to titles continuing to grow, students at every stage of literacy development can participate in rich listening experiences. Pre-readers are supported in their need for vocabulary and narrative understanding, while emergent readers find models of fluent reading guide them as they hone new decoding skills. More advanced readers continue to develop more complex thinking and increased empathy. Hear about developments that make listening increasingly engaging and enriching as well as evidence-based research about the important role played by audiobooks in the educational space.
