Read Alouds and Short Text Recorder | Monica Burns - Class Tech Tips | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"There are some teacher tools that have changed my instruction immensely and this is one of them!

 

QuickVoice allows you to record your voice and I use it for read alouds and test prep throughout the school year.  You can record your own voice reading a short text or picture book and play it back to your students.  I usually use this with my iPhone and then plug it in to speakers to play back for students."

Занимательная вещь, способная увлечь детей лет 10-13. Сайт переводит вас к приложению для iOS, собственно только в виде приложения всё и работает. Можно создавать короткие анимированные ролики, записывая свой голос или набирая текст. Объем текста ограничен. Говорят персонажи только по-английски. Полезно будет для напоминания о домашней работе, о различных кратких правилах или исключениях. Ученики могут использовать это приложение на уроках или дома, создавая свои мини-ролики. А им это, безусловно, понравится!

 

Только английский язык.

Leslie Buford's curator insight, May 10, 2013 10:05 AM

The voting 'eggs' in the suitcase, where each needed to be programmed, are obsolete.  Students and teachers can use their web devices to quickly set up polls and other interactive feedback quickly and easily with web based options, of which this is one of the simplest.  For iPad users, check out NearPod, Socrative, or Doceri, each with its own feature ist, to see which works best for you!  It can be difficult to move from traditonal modes of presentation to building interaction into instruction, but I am trying to plan future PD courses using this type of technology.  I would love feedback from teachers and professional development specialists about what works, pitfalls to look out for, and any other resources that you may suggest.

The "Kid Blog' is a safe and effective way to allow your students to keep up to date blogs in a secure evironment. With these blogs students can not only post their own blogs, but oarticipate in discussions.

I feel this is a gerat resourse to use within the classroom, as students and teachers can keep track of students posts and especially look at their progress throughout the year.
