ICT Tip: Vocaroo is lightning fast way for students to record an audio clip and share it with others

9 Nov

Quick overview: A website that allows you to record and playback your voice. If desired, it can be shared with others. Extremely simple interface.

How does it work? Vocaroo (www.vocaroo.com) is very straightforward to use. In fact, it’s so easy that there is only ONE button that you can press when you arrive the website.. the record button!

How can this be used in the classroom? The Vocaroo website allows language students record their own voice and then hear their own pronunciation. If desired, students can use Vocaroo to record a sound clip and then share it with their teacher or other students by choosing the “post on the Internet” or “send to a friend” buttons. If students choose the “post on the Internet” option, they will be provided with a unique “Vocaroo Link” which they can simply copy and paste into an e-mail. This site opens up the possibilities of working with ESL or FSL students in other classrooms or even others around the world! (Source: Tammy Worcester, ISTE 2010 Denver conference)
