Using Sound recording in the (PLL) classroom – #TMETRU09


This evening I will presenting at Teachmeet EdTechRoundup on the above subject, sharing how I use sound recording in my classroom and suggesting why it is such a valuable tool.

Here are some references / notes that go with what I will (might?) say!
Easispeak microphones – from TTS – also other speaking and listening tools such a
s talking postcards and talking photoalbums.
Audacity – free and downloadable from here
Garageband (for Macs)
Podomatic – a free place to create and listen to podcasts
My school Podomatic podcast – WCPS Spanish
My own Podomatic podcast – Lisibo talks!
And we’re on iTunes too!
Voki – we love Voki at WCPS!
Voicethread – another great tool for using sound recording in learning.
Here’s one I made to give people an idea of how they work!
Our school wikispace- WCPS.wikispaces.com – giving examples of use in other areas of the curriculum eg RE, Literacy.
