Week 7 - Tuesday 1st June
Discover your easi-speak! (Jan)
All classes are now the proud owners of the useful and funky easi-speak microphones. Come and learn more about ways you could be using this tool regularly in class to enhance your oral language programme and other curriculum areas. We will also learn how to download the eas-speak files and give you ways you could use these once they are on your computer.
This is a hands on session - bring your laptop and class easi-speak.

The Easi Speak USB mic is a handheld microphone that lets you record directly onto the device, a bit like a dictaphone. They are very portable and would be ideal for taking on school trips.
You can play the recorded files back directly from the microphone (it has a small speaker built in, or you can use the headphone socket) for immediate feedback. Or you can flip the cap off the bottom of the microphone to reveal the USB connector and plug it in to your computer to offload the files.
It has a 128MB memory that can record up to 4 hours of sound. It records in WAV or MP3 format so you can take the files and put them directly into Audacity or similar Editing Software. It has a built-in rechargeable battery which can be charged through USB.

Ways to use the Easi-speak
-Record childrens' poems and speech recital for self assessment
-Written work can be recorded and showcased on your class blog in moviemaker or a Voki . There are many other audio publishing options I am yet to explore
-Record and listen to music and sounds (Music and Science)
-Take them with you on EOTC to record ideas
-Roving reporter, interviews, surveys, drama, role-play
-Learning languages
-ESOL
-Record and replay reading to self-assess fluency
-Use as means of an alternative to written assessment. Children will speak about their learning.
-Record work for portfolios (in a quiet setting)
