Within my professional experience I found the use of interactive stories on youtube an effective approach to introducing texts to students. As the majority of students within the class struggled to maintain engagement during learning activities, these interactive stories enhanced their ability to listen to stories, comprehend the sequence of events and contribute to class discussions. These interactive stories provided an authentic approach to introducing texts, as the students were able to view visual representations of events, in comparison to having to use their imagination to view events when reading a storybook. It was clear to see that the use of interactive stories was an effective approach to enhance student learning.
