Easi-Speak USB Recorder Giveaway!

Here is another excellent, must have, educational tool from Learning Resources!
The Easi-Speak USB Recorder.


This is an amazingly fun and useful tool for any classroom. Learning Resources has given me one to review and I am very excited to share my findings with you. 
And, stick around, because you can win one, too!

This is how the microphone comes shipped to you.


And, this is actually what it looks like.


It's the perfect size for little hands and is incredibly easy to use. All you have to do to record yourself, is push the red "record" button. To play back what you've recorded, you just push the green "play" button. Even our youngest students will be successful. I especially love that it is wireless and does not require batteries. You just connect it to your computer's USB to charge it back up. It gives you 4 hours of audio before it needs to be charged. 

I tried it out on some of my students who are in summer camp and they all loved it. You should have seen the smiles on their faces when they played themselves back. I had them each read a whole story and then I played it back for everyone to hear. Even the really shy children were excited to use it. I can only imagine what this will do for the self esteem of our most reluctant readers!

As a writing teacher, I will have my young authors read their finished pieces into the microphone. Then, I will play it back for the class to hear. I will also use it for teacher conferences, storytelling, assessments, and more.

What will you use it for? I can't wait to hear! There are several ways you can enter to win one for your classroom, so feel free to pick and choose the ways that appeal to you. However, the more ways you choose, the better your chances are of winning. Please be sure you enter this contest honestly, as this giveaway will be closely monitored. You may click on "view terms and conditions" (at the bottom of the rafflecopter) for more information on how a winner is chosen. Good luck everyone!

  1. Oh my gosh! I use voice recorders in my classroom! However, I struggle with them remembering how to use them. They are not made for 1st graders. These would be perfect! If I don't win one, I know I will be buying some! Thanks for showing them to us!

  8. I agree with the teachers who said they would use it for reading fluency. I think that's a good idea. I also think it would be great for classroom management, so if we need to repeat ourselves, we can just push a button!

  12. I have literally entered every one of these and nothing, lol. I would really love to just belt out all of my Broadway favorites each and every day, for my little ones, but that won't help. They would run and never come back...well, on second thought! No, I would have them use it during buddy reading and fluency checks.

  35. I would use this for my ESL students- to practice fluency, pronunciation, and speaking. They can record themselves and I can listen back. This would also be great for speech students to practice and together we could listen and work on specific skills. And for all my readers to record their reading... so many great uses!

  40. So many uses! Fluency checks, recording students reading their own stories and poems, sharing reading samples with parents at conference times, working with speech delays practice what the speech pathologist is working on, and my favorite: letting kids tattle into the microphone so you can "listen" to them later! This would be used all day long in my classroom :)

  41. I would love to have one of these to use in my classroom. I would love to use it for a fluency center, where the students could read into it and then hear themselves (I used to use my kareoke machine and cassettes, but it's so loud). I would also love to incorporate it into Author's chair so they could read their stories into it and then post on my class webpage for parents or to use at conferences.

  42. I think I would like to let them take it home and have them read with a parent or family member- then they could play it back at school.
    It would promote the reading at home- and let those parents who cant come into the room be a part of our class.

It would be a great tool to play for parents at fall and spring parent/teacher conference to show the progress made. Also, it would be great for ESL students listening and speech.

  45. I currently use tubaloos to practice fluency but this would be even more powerful as the children can hear themselves after reading the whole piece. I would also use it for editing/revising...the children would read it then listen to check for whether something sounds right and makes sense.

I also think it would work great to record myself giving instructions if I want a small group working on something different or separate from the rest of the class. They could go to their workspace and find out what to do while I work with the rest of the class.

  56. I would love to be able to have the opportunity to use this within my classroom as it would be a big help for my first year teaching a split grade 1/2 classroom. The student would be able to record themselves to hear how their story sounds. They might be encouraged to fix up their work to make it sound even better when they hear it. Also it might help some who are not over outgoing to be less self-conscious of their work. Looks like a great too I'd love to try!

If they could then listen to it being read back to them they would be able to understand it better and see what fluency they are getting wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Oh mh heck! I would use this for students to record their repeated reading (they could actually hear themselves improving).

  110. This giveaway is awesome. I would definitely use this during my iii(small groupings) As you know, our school spend 30minutes daily to work with low students through Immediate Intensive Intervention. Students would love to hear their voice and I will make them understand where they went wrong with pronunciation when they hear their voice again. This will help themself correct during Reading Fluency. I am soo pumped up to start the school and work hard. Our school was a "D" last year and because of everyone's hard work we went to B. This is very inspiring for me to work hard more. I would be very happy to have this in my classroom which will also help mimimize distractions because your low group will focus more.

  122. Wow! I can think of a million ways how I would use this device, but most have been mentioned here on the blog. Of course I would use it to assess flueny, articulation, and word attack skills. I would also use it to add to my students electronic portfolios. Having a digital recording of their reading would be beneficial to them and their parents.

    The first thought I had when I saw this was that I teach children of active duty military service men and women. I teach on the second largest Marine Corps base in the world and every single one of my students have parents that are serving. How wonderful would it be to use this device to record their child reading and put it on my class website for my deployed parents in Afghanistan. The parent could log on and listen to their child read. Often times my parents are deployed for the entire school year and have no idea of the progress their child is making. This would provide them with a chance to hear their child's voice and see how well their child is reading. This would keep the servicemember involved and for a few short moments let them hear their child's voice.

  124. I would have the students read into it and listen to themselves read. I would also have them record their presentations to listen to and learn.

    I would love to have one of these. It would be to help my ELL kiddos feel more comfortable speaking. Hearing their own voices will give them more confidence speking up at large group time. Thanks for the opportunity to be part of the raffle

  163. Our school is starting the Daily 5 program at our school. Centers include read to self, read to someone, and listen to reading. I would be able have children read to themselves or a partner and record a book. I could then in turn look them on the computer and another student could listen the story. I could even post children reading on my blog and other students could go to the blog and listen at home! This is an exciting product!!!

  164. I would use it to help with fluency for reading. If the students can hear themselves read they can accurately reflect on their strengths and needs. What a neat tool!
