Using Sound recording in the (PLL) classroom - #TMETRU09

This evening I will presenting at Teachmeet EdTechRoundup on the above subject, sharing how I use sound recording in my classroom and suggesting why it is such a valuable tool.

Here are some references / notes that go with what I will (might?) say!
Easispeak microphones - from TTS - also other speaking and listening tools such a
s talking postcards and talking photoalbums.

Audacity - free and downloadable from here
Garageband (for Macs)

Podomatic - a free place to create and listen to podcasts
My school Podomatic podcast - WCPS Spanish
My own Podomatic podcast - Lisibo talks!
And we're on iTunes too!
Voki - we love Voki at WCPS!
Voicethread - another great tool for using sound recording in learning.
Here's one I made to give people an idea of how they work!

Our school wikispace- - giving examples of use in other areas of the curriculum eg RE, Literacy.
