Innovating education with technology.
With the simple app "Quick Voice Recorder" (from nFinity Inc) I 've just set up my mini-language laboratory with the iPad class.
I have previously recorded my exercises for the german pronunciation and reading practice with this app and uploaded to "showbie". Students will listen to the audio files there in m4a format, then they try to speak the exercises, record and upload them on "showbie". (Alternative: upload to Dropbox, the audio files can be heard even in the background).
After this step I listen to the audio files and give feedback for a better practice.
Listening and recording works fine with modern headphones with a built-in microphone.
