Designed for Educational Use, MP3 Player Helps to Eliminate Difficulties with Reading
Califone International, Inc., announces that Read Right Systems, Inc., an organization that developed and implements an innovative methodology for improving reading skills, has selected the Califone MP3 Player to be used in the company’s Read Right® program.
Implemented in K-12 schools, correctional institutions, learning centers, and community colleges nationwide, Read Right serves as an intervention program for struggling readers, including special needs students, and is used as a tool for language acquisition. A critical part of the program’s methodology utilizes audio books to enhance the predictability of the text. This format also requires the students to be able to easily return to the beginning of each paragraph. The program’s tutors are currently using cassette tapes and cassette players, which can be difficult to quickly and easily rewind to the desired place in the text. The Califone MP3 Player creates a more efficient learning experience and expands the user’s ability to control the playing of the audio book, enhancing the efficiency of the tutoring and learning processes.
