Their favorite part was being able to listen to it right away from the built in speakers. We also imported these recordings using the built-in USB, into Audacity to practice editing the audio files and using them in other applications like Photo Story 3 and Windows Movie Maker.
We are so thankful that Learning Resources has given us this helpful technology! It’s been easy to put it to good use in our regular classroom settings, even for our not-so-tech-savvy teachers. It’s a valuable addition to our daily activities.
We are so thankful!
