Integrated speaker offers quality playback for instant self-assessment.
|My 8-year old couldn't wait for me to get it out of the box!|
And do you have those kiddos that are super readers, but get a little careless? With the EASI-SPEAK, those students seemed to be instantly challenged to sit up tall & show off their best reading. When one little guy listened to himself read he said, "Dang! I used some good expression in my voice!" Too cute! I love how easy it is for them to play back/listen to themselves & self-assess their reading.
Now, as a teacher you know that there are bazillions of products out there that are really cool, but OMigosh are they complicated! Some are not even worth bothering with....not EASI-SPEAK! This has got to be the easiest thing ever to use...(guess that's why they named it "Easi-Speak"! Ha ha!) Seriously, all I did was plug it straight into my USB port on my computer to charge it up. Yep! That's right...NO BATTERIES or CORDS!!! Woo Hoo!
The possiblilities are endless...I'm planning to use this as part of a digital portfolio for my first graders next year. It will be super easy to record a reading sample from each student at the beginning, middle & end of the year. It's great for sharing student progress with parents & other teachers also. Another use... I'm going to use the EASI-SPEAK to record some of our favorite stories for students to listen to at the reading center. They're gonna be so surprised to hear my voice when they put those headphones on!
