Learning Media is piloting the use of embedded support in the audio versions of non-fiction texts from the School Journal, Junior Journal, and School Journal Story Library (years 5-6) and School Journal Story Library (years 7-8).
Embedded support is designed to assist students to use visual features, such as photographs and diagrams, to help them make meaning of the text.
The aim of including embedded support in audio is to help students to use the strategies highlighted in the audio file independently when they read other non-fiction texts.
Teachers are asked to provide feedback after they have used the audio track(s).
