Tales from a Loud Librarian: Creating Audio Book Reviews with Chirbit

Tales from a Loud Librarian: Creating Audio Book Reviews with Chirbit | Digital Tools for Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"Each student in the class was asked to read a book that they liked and create a book talk that describes the plot and recommends the story to other readers. When read aloud, each book talk was to be 90 seconds or less. The students used the tech tool Chirbit to record their talks. I chose Chirbit because the interface is easy to use, and once recorded, a QR code and URL is generated for each Chirbit that a student creates." by Elizabeth Kahn @Elizabeth Kahn
