Use recorded audio comments to respond to students' work

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the course of this session, participants will learn to create digital audio files with which they provide their students' with responses and evaluations of their work. Hands-on experience with free audio editing software (Audacity by SourceForge) will allow participants to create recordings of their voices and enhance those recordings with musical (and other audio) introductions and accompaniments. Each participant will create one practice recorded audio comment. Recorded audio comments are good teaching (multi-sensory, multi-media) and they are fun.

Be sure to review the list of devices and software and apps that are recommended!

  • Software and Apps http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
  • Devices <strong>Bring a laptop or tablet loaded with audio editing software.</strong> The free software I use is Audacity by SourceForge. Macs usually come loaded with Garage Band, which will work great. Any software that allows you to record, edit, and export an mp3 file will work. <br /> Before you come to this session, practice recording and playing back your voice with your device. If possible, bring with you a simple microphone or headset device that can help you make a better quality recording. I will provide a few plug-in microphones for those who don't have their own. <br /> Finally, your experience with recorded audio comments will be enhanced if you also have one or more music files (e.g., mp3) that you will edit and add to your audio comments. Just like on NPR!
