Imagine turning a corner of your classroom or library into a place where stories come to life. Want to make a laid-back, comfy listening station? Voxblock audiobook players are here to make it an easy thing to do. Here’s a quick guide to listening stations and why Voxblock is about to become your new favourite library friend.
What is a listening station?
A listening station is where students can relax and soak in the wonders of a good story. It is the perfect blend of classroom technology and story time magic. No need for anything fancy; you could simply have a Voxblock audiobook player, a headphone splitter for the group and some headphones. It's like building a cosy reading corner, but with a tech twist that won't cost a fortune.
Why are Voxblocks perfect for listening stations?
Voxblocks are a great choice for a school library listening station thanks to their simple and easy to use design. The internet-free audiobook players give kids a hands-on experience with stories, young readers can pick their own stories from a physical library of audiobook 'blocks' without needing internet or help from teachers. They're designed to let kids browse and choose titles; they can read the blurb, see the cover art and the length of the story - just like a physical book.
Benefits of a listening station
Audiobooks contribute not only to storytelling but also to literacy improvement. It's like having a real-life storyteller helping with reading comprehension and language skills.
Amid the classroom buzz, your listening station can be a calm reading space. Children can relax and unwind with their favourite story, taking time away from the hustle and bustle of the classroom.
