I'm going to piggyback onto my post from yesterday about Evernote to share how I used it to make an audio recording note.
One of my students is who has been identified as dyslexic is really struggling with writing. He fills up his paper with a lot of writing but then is unable to read it if he comes back to it later (and I usually can't either.) I hate always marking up his paper, but if I don't, I can't make any sense of it. I have put sticky notes on his work with the "translation" but they fall off.
So today I recorded him reading his writing to me and then took a picture of his work. Now both are filed in his notebook in Evernote so when it is time to assess his writing portfolio, I can look beyond the spelling and remember his message. The kids thought this was pretty cool, so I recorded a couple of others just for fun!
I used my phone (Samsung Galaxy S3) to record. I selected new note and then choose "record audio." Then I snapped a picture, added a comment and there it was!
