Do we learn better by reading or listening
The hypothesis that students who listen to the comprehension passage read to them will retain more information compared to students who read the comprehension themselves is proven to be true.
The use of audio as a teaching tool has been around for sometime. Language and motivational tapes or CDss are the most common. The advantage is thatI theyt can be listened to while doing other chores like driving, cooking or gardening. Listening to the tapes over and over again helps us to remember and retain better.
The experiment can performed on subjects of a different age group.
Try to compare the results by repeating the experiment using visual teaching like power point presentations or pictures.
