Do we learn better by reading or listeningFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

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.

Also consider

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.
