Podcasting, Oral Recording, Oral Quizzes
  • Podcasting, oral recordings, and oral quizzes – A number of resources on the Internet allow students to post phone calls as audio files or podcasts. Teachers can create a Google Voice account – http://google.com/voice - that provides a free local phone number associated with the teacher’s phone or voice mailbox. Students can use it to leave recorded homework assignments or test answers.

  • Mobile Geotagging – This allows students to post photos, videos, audio recordings, or text messages linked to a particular location. For example, students in a biology class might use Flagrhttp://flagr.com to take photos of animals in different locations. The teacher can then create a map showing the different habitats and discuss why each animal lives there. Or history students might use GeoGraffitihttp://geograffiti.com to go to various historical sites and record brief descriptions of them; the teacher can then create a map and play back the recordings associated with each location.
digital storybooks

Self Organization
  • Self-organization – Using voice-to-text applications like Jotthttp://jott.com and Dial2Do http://dial2do.com, students can call in reminders to themselves, send e-mails or text messages to groups of people, create posts, create a schedule on a Google calendar, listen to their Google calendar, listen to their e-mail, and listen to podcasts and webpages when they are out and about.
