Dyslexia & Dysgraphia: Here Comes Pod/Vodcasting

Students experiencing dyslexia (difficulties reading) need more time to sound out letters and recognize words—time that is taken away from text comprehension and understanding. For those experiencing dysgraphia, the difficulty lies in moving thoughts and ideas into the written word—time invested in spelling out words and compiling sentences takes away focus. The key to both learning experiences is the need for a medium to facilitate the reading and writing processes. One way to make the reading process easier is to make educational materials readily available via audiobooks or podcasting; the writing process can be facilitated with the use of apps or via vodcasting.
