Would your students benefit from hearing verbal instructions from you along with the worksheets you distribute in class? Let's learn how you can make worksheets talk.
In the above 3-Minute Classroom Problem Solver video, Monica Burns explains step-by-step how to add audio instructions to your worksheets with Vocaroo.
Vocaroo is a free online recording tool. It uses the microphone built into your computer or mobile device. It's one of the simplest tools out there. Simply click record, and when you stop recording your file is available. Monica also explains how you can use the QR code given by Vocaroo to include instructions on your worksheets. This gives students the chance to scan the QR code for more information, if they need it.
