Digital Voice Recording with Vocaroo

One of the most powerful, yet underutilized, features of technology today is the ability to record students' voice.  This can aid in assessing reluctant writers, give a voice to the shyest students, help students proof-read their own writing, and assist students in developing reading fluency independently.  There are a myriad of applications that can be used for this, but I have recently discovered a simple tool that is perfect for use on our school's new Chromebooks.

Vocaroo is a web-based audio recording application that allows you to embed, email, or share your audio files to a variety of social media sites.  You can also create a QR Code for your audio file, which others can scan to hear.

Test it out.  I'd love to hear how you are using it in your classroom!
