Listening and Learning with Public Radio

Research shows students can absorb information through listening at two to three grade levels higher than they can through reading. In this webinar, presenters Monica Brady-Myerov and Adam Pizzi used public radio to help teachers and administrators gain a better understanding of how auditory learning works. They demonstrated ways to build critical listening skills in the classroom and discussed the tools educators can use to accomplish this. Topics discussed included best practices for using public radio in the classroom, cognitive research into auditory learning, and listening strategies to improve metacognition.
