Following the successful introduction of Voxblock Schools, we have launched a nationwide search for 20 UK primary schools to participate in a new Audio into Schools initiative.
Qualifying schools will each receive a free Voxblock audiobook player and three books (worth £59.99) enabling them to test for themselves the educational and wellbeing benefits of adding audiobooks to primary classrooms or school libraries. To apply your child’s school needs to complete the application form here by 17th November 2023.
The books included are:
Why should my child’s school apply?
This initiative is designed to give primary schools the opportunity to experience, first hand, how the use of audiobooks in educational settings can improve literacy and wellbeing, especially amongst struggling and reluctant readers. Audiobooks can play a pivotal role in enhancing reading skills, including decoding and comprehension, while simultaneously nurturing a deep-seated love for reading, fostering well-being, and boosting emotional intelligence. Backed by extensive research conducted by the Literacy Trust, the Voxblock initiative seeks to share the positive impact of practices like Reading While Listening (RWL) and the role of audio in supporting literacy engagement.
Who can apply?
We are delighted to announce that this initiative is available to primary schools throughout the UK.
How can I apply to receive a free Voxblock player and books?
Participating is simple. Your child’s school just needs to complete the application form here by 17th November 2023. Once accepted into the program, the school will receive one audiobook player and three books to get started. If you have any questions please get in touch here or on email@example.com.
