Vocaroo {Voice Recording Tool}



Vocaroo is a voice recording website that allows students to either upload a voice recording or to record their voice directly from the website (as long as the tablet or computer has microphone capabilities). Voice can be recorded as many times as necessary until it sounds right.

Once the recording is complete, there are multiple ways for students to share their recordings. I typically have my students email me their link. Sometimes I have them do presentations this way and then I share them in class. One teacher had students read a children's book aloud to themselves and then they shared them with the Kindergarten teachers who now had read aloud items for her students. Another teacher I worked with taught Spanish and she had her students record themselves counting from 1 - 20 so that she could her how the students annunciation was coming along.


Try it out & let me know what you think,
