I am a K-4 teacher with the Vancouver School District (formerly teaching in Surrey Schools). With 30+ years of experience and a bunch of improvements along the way, I still have so much more to learn. This blog is a way to help me process and share all that I'm discovering on my quest to be the best educator I can be.

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.

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.
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. :-)ReplyDelete
