Recommended app of the month
This month the recommended app for you to check out in your classroom is a relatively new one on me. Vocal Recall, its name clearly a play on the eighties sci-fi blockbuster, 'Total Recall', is a great app for giving all manner of different types of feedback using your voice. It's explained really well in the photo below:
With this in mind, anything you can put a sticker on can receive feedback. Whether that's MFL books with a corrected pronunciation, more extended feedback than you could actually write on an essay, pointing exactly to the place where there's a problem on a piece of work with an explanation that can be paused, rewound or repeated. It's good!
Thanks for reading this far. I hope you've enjoyed this first newsletter. Let me please wish you a very successful new year and hope that it is happy, balanced and successful.
