Social Engagement: Medium
What’s What: We are proud to ally with Learning Ally. Their mission? To ensure that all students have equal opportunities to learn.
Amava Take: With an extensive library of high quality, human-read audiobooks, student-centric features and a suite of teacher resources, Learning Ally provides equitable access to curriculum in a format struggling readers can easily absorb, allowing them to achieve their academic potential. Spanning from popular fiction to literature, from audio book classics to audio books for history and other textbooks, Learning Ally offers titles built with the help of their nation-wide network of remote volunteers and professionals with subject matter expertise in areas such as science, technology, engineering and math. Learning Ally’s digital audio books are both effective and essential. Here’s what they need today: African-American voice-over artists and experienced narrators who can authentically voice African-American stories and narrators who are fluent in Spanish and English who can read Spanish language textbooks.
