Here is what the HearAll Assessment Recorder looks like:
And here are some great things this incredible tool does:
- It allows you to be in two places at once. Really! When you are teaching in small groups, it provides an extra set of ears so that you can monitor other groups, while you are tending to your own.
- You can actually hear who is involved and participating in the groups and who is having difficulty.
- You can even save several recordings over time and upload them to your blog, classroom homepage, or, you can give them to specialists for them to use in their assessments.
- It requires no batteries (it's rechargeable), is lightweight, and is sleek and attractive.
Children absolutely LOVE technology and they will adore recording themselves doing their best work. I tried it out last week and I was amazed at how clear the children's voices were recorded, even though there was lots of background noise. Everyone in the group was heard perfectly. I am looking forward to using this in my writing classroom. The children can record themselves reading their published pieces. In addition, when I am conferencing with students, I can have other students recording their conferences for me to listen to later. I can even play back successful peer conferences for the entire class to hear, so that all my students will learn how to conduct them in order to get the most out of them. I am so excited to use the HearALL Assessment Recorder in my classroom!
