Recorded Books and SLJ are sponsoring a free webcast event on September 28, 2008 at 02:00 PM (ET) focusing on strategies for incorporating audiobooks into K-12 literacy. “Recorded books are a research-validated tool for improving vocabulary, comprehension, and literacy skills for young readers of all abilities and are especially effective with emerging, reluctant, and ESL readers. Recorded books can also be incorporated into the school library and media center’s strategies to keep the attention of their “2.0” students with new devices such as the Playaway, a single title audiobook in a tiny package with “press and play” sensibilities that is perfect for tween and teen readers.” Panelists include Mary Burkey, Teacher-Librarian, Olentangy Liberty Middle School, Powell, OH, Lee Ann Spillane, former Reading Writing Center Coordinator, Cypress Creek High School, Orlando, FL, Patti Tjomsland, Library Media Specialist, Mark Morris High School, Longview, WA, and Hillary Wolfe, Intervention Coordinator, Camino Nuevo Academy, Los Angeles, CA.
