For language learners, a listening center helps students learn pronunciation through audible listening and allows them to be assessed at a more personal level.

For new readers, playing an audio book through the listening center can help challenge students by reading more difficult books they would normally read. It also allows students to go at their own pace and not feel rushed or held back by others. The headphones allow students to eliminate distractions and the fear of making mistakes.

Potential iPod Listening Center Activities include:
  • Creating your own activities
  • Reading along with Audio Books
  • Testing auditory listening skills
  • Recording voices for pronunciation and testing purposes.
