Vocaroo and Poetry!

One of the Grade 6 classes was working on poetry this week.  They had to research a poet, and find their favorite poem by that author.  After doing some biographical research to learn about their poet, and then posting it in their kidblog.  After they did that I suggested to the students that they could record their favorite poem using Vocaroo.  Vocaroo is ridiculously easy to use.  Once you give it permission to access your microphone you click the record button, and record whatever you want to say.  After that, if you like what you hear, you can share it by emailing it, or get the code to embed it into a website.  If you don't like it, record again.  Thats it!  The students had no problem using it, and within 15 minutes everyone pretty much had theirs done.  I would recommend it for anyone to use.
