7 Tech Tips for Your Next Read Aloud Reading aloud to children is an essential part of the school day. Experiencing stories as a whole class or in a small group can help students learn essential reading skills. Educators who read aloud to children understand the importance of modeling thinking, providing opportunities to talk about books, and encouraging students to respond to reading with their own thoughts and opinions. As schools increase the amount of technology available to teachers, educators are presented with unique opportunities to incorporate tech tools into their instruction.
