Audacity is a powerful yet easy to use program that will allow you and/or your students to create MP3 audio files and it is available to us through the Software Center. These audio files can be used in a number of ways:
~ To record your whole class directions so that students may listen to those directions again later in class and/or from home
~ To record tests for read aloud purposes
~ To record passages or study guides that students may listen to as they read
~ For students to record themselves reading a passage they have been assigned or that they have written themselves
~ For students to work on their own or collaboratively on a speaking, listening, reading and/or writing project.
Please let me know if you are interested in having me work with you and/or your students to make the most of Audacity.
