Studying with the assistance of voice

Studying with the assistance of voice

The exceptional spring in 2020 brought many different kinds of unexpected challenges all around the world. One of those challenges was schooling and in some countries teaching and studying had to be organized fully remotely – and schools were given a very short time frame to do so.

In some countries Covid-19 forced schools to organize teaching entirely remotely.

The significance of voice is tremendous. The teacher utilizes his/her voice to explain the matter studied in that particular moment and on the other hand group works are usually planned and presented orally – either physically in the classroom or virtually. Learning is what happens in that interaction.

Challenges a student may face

Sometimes studying becomes more difficult and there can be lots of reasons that lead to that situation. For example, different learning disabilities are rather common. According to WebMD between 8 % to 10 % of children under 18 in the U.S. may have some type of learning disability. And if those disabilities remain undiagnosed, they usually lead to lower study success, when compared to one’s IQ.

In an article written by Tom Akira, it is said that dyslexia is one of the most common learning disabilities. It affects one’s reading and is associated with language-based processing skills. Dyslexia can have an impact on spelling, recall, reading fluency, reading comprehension, decoding, and writing.

For a person that suffers from learning disability, it can be very helpful to be able to listen to the learning material. Also a conversation during a lesson can be a powerful way to support a student’s learning. The most important thing is to identify the means to get to the best possible results. 

Enhance studying results by listening

If you are an auditory learner, you learn by hearing and listening, writes the Education Planner. You understand and remember things you’ve heard.

Here are some tips that can help you learn, if you are an auditory learner:

  • Sit where you can hear.
  • Have your hearing checked on a regular basis.
  • Use flashcards to learn new words; read them out loud.
  • Read stories, assignments, or directions out loud.
  • Record yourself spelling words and then listen to the recording.
  • Have test questions read to you out loud.
  • Study new material by reading it out loud. (Education Planner)

If you want, you can also ask your teacher if it is possible to record the learning situation. Then there is a possibility to return to the material later on. But please consider that carefully, because listening lessons all over again can be really time-consuming.
