Playing with Audio Boo

A while back  I told my students about a tool I had heard about on the internet called Audio Boo.  I told them that one day we'd be able to record their reading and post them on either our class blog or their individual blogs.  Anyhow I've just realized that I haven't yet tried Audio Boo myself.  So this evening I did just that.  I can't wait to try this with my students. I know they are going to love it and what a great authentic way to document their reading progress through out the year.  Now if only I had recorded them back in September. They have already made so many gains.


  1. Hi Karen,

    I love using Audioboo too! Using my iPod Touch to do voice recordings is an incredibly motivating way for students to demonstrate their learning; I love that with Audioboo I can share that with a wider audience on our classroom blog. So far I have posted our food drive P.A. announcement, and I am getting ready to post a class recitation of "T'was the Night Before Christmas". One of my goals is to present my students' learning in as many ways as possible on the blog, and Audioboo is a great tool to help accomplish this.


  2. Megan I think we have another topic for our chats while we run. I haven't used it with my class yet but I do plan to use it term two. It's such a powerful too. There are so many powerful tools out there to explore and learn. Never a dull day. I LOVE all the learning and sharing you're doing with your class. I can't wait for my students to get to your grade level. :-)
