Purpose of this activity: To listen to different examples of audio used in an educational context.
Using recorded audio in the classroom is old as recorded audio itself. Educational uses of audio were predicted to be amongst the primary uses of the phonograph intended by Edison in 1878, yet with recent improvements in mobile computing, sound is being increasingly deployed in an educational context.
