Unlock the Doors of Literacy with Audio-Visual Content
Presented by Sandhya Lakhanpal
The pandemic affected our classrooms in many ways. Educators were thrown into a loop with the need to pivot into virtual learning in a matter of
days. With the shift to virtual learning, educators were forced to present content using technology.
While creating audio and video assets may have been an extra effort in the regular classroom, virtual learning made the use of these formats’
commonplace. On one hand students with dyslexia struggled to access text-heavy content, on the other audio & video content unlocked a whole new
world of literacy. We saw an uptick in the performance of students with dyslexia. With audio-visual content, we were suddenly playing to their
strengths in an otherwise imbalanced classroom environment.
The question remains, how can we continue to make learning accessible with the use of these tools. Can we leverage the power of audio-visual
format to make learning accessible to students with dyslexia and cater to the learning-preferences of others?
We seek to serve Generation Alpha. Born in the 21st Century, Generation Alpha is tech-centric by nature. Let’s play to their strengths and make
literacy accessible to all.
