Audio recording

With our common core, under Speaking/Listening (SL.2.5), it states.."create audio recordings of stories or poems, add drawings or other visual displays to stories."

How are you going to record your students? TIA

BTW: our school has a set of IPads (25) but the entire school shares them (roughly 1,000 students). And this is a standard for most grade levels I believe.

Thinking same thing

We are going to use iPads, but was also thinking can't they just use a tape recorder? My bigger question is -why? After they listen to themselves, then what? I can't imagine making the whole class listen to all of them.

I prefer good old fashioned public speaking lessons. Actually, an Old FShioned would taste pretty good right now!

Last year I used the Ipads (3) to record my students. I recorded them reciting the Poems for 2 Voices with their illustrations. It was time consuming but worthy.

This year, I was able to get one iPad to use the last months of school so I made videos of the students reading a book and another of them reading an informational report that they wrote.

I also have a subscription to RAZ-Kids. Students are able to record themselves reading the books. I could listen to the recordings when I had time later and then send them an encouraging note. The students can also listen to themselves reading. Sometimes I put it up on the Smartboard and the class listened to the student read a book. The students reflected on their reading. We gave comments about what we noticed. For example, "I noticed that you got stuck on this word when you were reading. You did two things that good readers do when they get stuck. You got your mouth ready and sounded out the word and you looked at the picture. What is something else that you can do when you get stuck?"

I would think that you could use a tape recorder.

Voice Thread might be another option.

What do you do with the recordings?

Thanks for the suggestions. I have an old fashioned recorder might just use that.

Keltikmom: I feel the same! After they record them, then what? I asked our instructional coach this same question and she said the main thing is having them record them. I also can't imagine having everyone listen to all of them. ugh

We use a computer program called audacity. It can be downloaded for free. Kids take turns using it on the 3 classroom computers. They can save their files for us to listen/use later. It is easy for the kids to use independently once we practice a few times. Our teachers LOVE it!

I'm thinking that it's really important to make tjis functional. Here are a few things I'm thinking of trying:

Making recorded books for a younger class. We'll do these on iPad and in Powerpoint. You could also jut do a printed book and an audio reording on cd.

Creating reports on Glogster that include video and audio clips of the kids.

Do video/audio recordings of the kids reading their writing and using QR codes to attach a link to the writing piece when we display or send it home.


These can be done with iPhone, iPad, video cameras, or the computer.

Book Recordings

Clip to ScrapBook #8

Last year I did a grant project and got 18 picture books and some cassette
tapes. The children chose a book, made a recording at home with their parent's help, and wrote 5 text dependent questions about their book. They used the questions to make a listening center activity for their book. They typed up their questions, made an illustration to "sell" their book. We laminated their project and set it up in our listening library. Then the rest of the class could check out the tape and book and do the activity. I think this year, I'll have these students use the audacity program to make their own recording when they do the activity.

Does your district really watch you like that

Do you really have to do this? My district is so focused on reading and math that I've never even looked at those standards.

And really, what is the purpose of such a standard? I guess these are my last priority. I want to make sure that I get reading, writing, math, science and social studies covered.

Daphne: It IS a standard so, yes, it will need to be done.

I will have to think of some ways to do this.

Dizzydolphin: That's a great idea!

standard

Your standard doesn't say, "when appropriate?" That's how it's worded in my state's version of the common core. I take that as when they are doing reports and/or presentations to the class.

I wouldn't make it a weekly or daily thing, just as an option for presentations. I think trying to do so many little things takes away from real learning.

It's not going to be a weekly or even monthly thing.

It's a one-time deal.

As your comment about "it takes away from real learning"...this is real learning. I believe it's put there so the kids become more proficient with Ipads/computers/digital world that we live in.

Photostory 3 + Audacity = Great Projects
Old 06-30-2013, 06:50 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #14

I have done some fantastic projects using Photostory combined with Audacity. The kids did original artwork, I scanned them.They also used free photos etc online, then they read their original poetry and stories over the images.This was then made accessible through my website and the school website for all parents, grandparents etc to see/hear and make comments for the kids- work with your tech person and it is eay and very impressive! She set up audacity so that the kids could read into the classroom telephone- we had them go to a separate room for no noise in the background.
