App #2

Audioboo creates a podcast for numerous different activities in the classroom that can be shared with the teacher, peers, the school and family. For example the students can read their own work and hear it in their own voice, reenact characters from their story books or people in history, or announce local news around the school. It is a great way to engage the students and create conversation to build your community in the classroom, the school and beyond!

It can be used in my Social Studies classrooms to make historical figures and events come alive through the creativity of the students, and in turn will help them learn and remember key topics. It will also be very helpful in my French classes because it will give the students the opportunity to practice speaking in French, often the hardest part of learning a new language.
