John Dalziel's curator insight, January 3, 11:18 AM
In this post I'm sharing iPad Apps that allow users to free up their hands and get rid of the traditional note pad! 
Three of these apps are FREE allowing users to stop taking handwritten notes in a note pad and start audio recording everything they need - from to-do lists to a critical memo with the use of audio. 
So, in alphabetical order we have... 
Audio Memos - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/audio-memos-voice-recorder/id338550388?mt=8 - currently costs £0.99 and is a professionally made audio recorder. It has a very intuitive interface, which is easy to use and full of powerful features. Assessors, learners, educators etc., can use it in...
  - interviews,
  - lectures,
  - music session,
  - briefings 
...and simplify their recording tasks. 
Dictaphone - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/dictaphone-audio-recorder/id595361888?mt=8 - is a FREE audio record manager that lets users...
  - dictate notes and memos, as well as
  - record meetings, lectures, interviews etc. 
Recorder Plus - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/recorder-plus-professional/id884644433?mt=8 - is FREE and provides a wide variety of features including...
  - one touch recording,
  - a user friendly interface,
  - high quality audio recording, record and playback in the background 
 ...and more. 
Smart Record - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/smart-record-voice-recorder/id1008197697 - is a FREE professional recording tool that enables users to...
  - assign notes and photos to their recordings, helping them to capture both the moment and context, transforming the recording into a transparent and organised piece of information/evidence for assessments etc. 
P.S. For those who use Android devices I'll be posting recorder apps for you in another post.

Listening Journals: Anthony teacher

Listening Journals: Anthony teacher | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

Listening Journals are a project/concept I have been toying with for the past few years and have been putting into practice into all my listening classes. I have presented the idea to colleagues in numerous settings and the ideas have been well received.

The basic premise is that students need both extensive and intensive listening practice. Extensive listening practice involves students listening to interesting, enjoyable and meaningful listening texts at or around their level. Intensive listening practice, in terms of listening journals, is exploiting these texts to practice important bottom-up listening skills (e.g. decoding). The journals in their various permutations set students on weekly or daily listening tasks that involve both aspects of listening while giving them a space for metacognitive reflection.

This looks attractively simple.  No log-in, just authorise access to your laptop mic and record.  Saves online and stores for 3 weeks - embed link, download button.

Welcome to Lit2Go ETC

Welcome to Lit2Go ETC | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
Welcome
"Lit2Go is a free online collection of stories and poems in Mp3 (audiobook) format. An abstract, citation, playing time, and word count are given for each of the passages. Many of the passages also have a related reading strategy identified. Each reading passage can also be downloaded as a PDF and printed for use as a read-along or as supplemental reading material for your classroom."

Shona Whyte:
Mostly American out-of-copyright classics aimed at native-speakers, but well put together for teachers (transcript, reading level, word count) so usable for intermediate-plus teen or adult learners.

Audio Diaries: feedback via SoundCloud

Audio Diaries: feedback via SoundCloud | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

The concept of Audio Diaries is actually quite simple. Students record something (on or off topic, with or without using target vocabulary or language structures). Students are then given feedback on their grammatical, lexical, and phonological errors. Finally, students re-record the same exact monologue, but this time, they must address their errors. In this way, students are getting delayed corrective feedback and forced uptake of feedback, in addition to raising their noticing and metacognitive skills. They are also getting individual attention, targeted practice in their “weak” areas, and more opportunities for speaking without the pressures of speaking in class.

Aside form typical complaints about too much homework, students seem to enjoy Audio Diaries. They enjoy the feedback and being able to have another chance to express their thoughts in a clearer way. In addition, by listening more closely to individuals I am better able to pinpoint and help them with their weaknesses in and out of class. Likewise, I am better able to notice persistent and common patterns and address them in class.
