According to The Infinite Dial report, Edison Research and Triton Digital’s 2019 research reveals that we have reached a watershed moment in the consumption of audio content. Podcasting, spoken-word audio, and even YouTube use is at an all-time high. How does audio ingestion impact how we process information? How are schools adapting to this trend? Are we teaching students how to use audio content for inquiry? In this edWebinar, Michelle Luhtala will share resources and tools to help participants integrate audio content into their instructional programs.
This edWebinar will be of value to grades 6-12 educators across subject areas. Michelle will answer questions throughout the presentation.
