'रीडअलॉंग' म्हणजे सहवाचन हा उपक्रम मराठीत यशस्वीपणे राबवल्यानंतर आता यू ट्यूबवर घेऊन येत आहोत व्हिडीओ, म्हणजे दृक-श्राव्य गोष्टी.
व्यावसायिक कलाकारांनी सहज शैलीत या गोष्टीचं रंगतदार वाचन केलं आहे. त्याला मजेदार संगीताची जोडही दिलेली आहे त्यामुळे गोष्टी जिवंत होतात. शब्दाचा उच्चार झाला की तो लिखित शब्द उजळतो आणि त्या उच्चाराचं बोट धरून मुलांना तो शब्द निवेदकाबरोबर वाचणं, सोपं जातं. लिखित शब्द आणि त्याचा उच्चार असं एकत्रितपणे समोर आल्यानं मुलांना वाचनाची गोडी लागायला मदत होते.
अगदी लहान गटातल्या वाचकांना डोळ्यासमोर ठेवल्यानं, वाचन पातळी १ आणि २ अशाच गोष्टी यात आहेत. शिवाय व्हिडिओचा कालावधी ५ मिनिटांपेक्षा कमी ठेवल्यानं मुलांचं लक्ष चांगलं लागतं. पुन्हा पुन्हा येणारे विशिष्ट शब्द आणि आवाज, आकर्षक चित्रं, नाट्यमयता यांची मुलांना मजा वाटते. हे लक्षात ठेवून मोठ्यानं वाचायला मजा येईल अशा गोष्टीं निवडल्या आहेत. शिवाय 'स्टोरीविव्हर'वरील 'रीडअलॉंग'ची वैशिष्ट्ये जशीच्या तशी राखली आहेत.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 1.5 billion children and youth are out of school. With this, the need for reading materials for children that can be accessed at home, is more urgent than ever. StoryWeaver is collaborating with UNHCR, UNESCO, The Global Digital Library, The Global Book Alliance, The Asia Foundation and Learning Equality, to call for translation volunteers to accelerate the creation of multilingual digital reading material via the #TranslateAStory campaign.
You can participate in this campaign by volunteering to translate on StoryWeaver. It’s easy!
