Easy to install and use this is a free app. Could be used in a variety of ways but 2 that come to mind: 1. In learning languages  - the oral component needs to be practiced constantly. They could record themselves and listen to their pronunciation. They can then evaluate it, and develop ways to improve their skills.

2. Improving reading skills - students reading a passage and record themselves reading. They could then review the reading alone or with an adult. Students will improve when they can hear their own reading, evaluate it, and make a plan on how to improve their abilities.
