Hello, everyone! Learning Resources recently sent us some products for review AND offered to give a few to some lucky followers. The first product is their Easi-Speak USB Recorder. I read many different reviews and agreed with what many other teachers said. This would be great for fluency practice, center work, etc. However, I had something different in mind... :)
The students recently completed a moon research project. We were going to share them with parents and one child mentioned that her parent would not be able to come the day of our moon readings. That's when the Easi-Speak recorder came to mind! I recorded the students whose parent couldn't make it to our presentation, plugged the Easi-Speak into my computer, and emailed the recordings to those families! The kids were so excited and their parents were so proud! The files are saved as MP3 files so they're easy to save and email and the sound quality is great.
You can see the product on Learning Resources website (http://www.learningresources.com) or check them out at any of these sites: https://www.facebook.com/learningresources, http://twitter.com/#!/learninghandson, http://www.youtube.com/user/LearningResourcesInc.
