A while back, Learning Resources very generously gave me two of their products to review. You may remember when I blogged about their Easi Speak USB recorder…you can read that post HERE. Yep, that was quite a while back!! Well, I got through my really rough 3rd trimester and my drug-free (NOT by choice!) labor and delivery and have been enjoying some time with my precious baby boy, Finny:)
Well, it’s time to get back to business!! Today I am FINALLY writing my review on Learning Resources other AWESOME product…the Hear All Assessment Recorder! Check this baby out:
This is essentially, your extra set of ears:) See how it has a speaker on all 4 sides?? This allows it to pick up sound VERY well!! And you can just set it on the table and walk away while it records what your students are doing.
You can’t be everywhere at once and as much as you’d like to think you can…you just CANNOT see and hear everything that goes on in your classroom. Well, this little device can help you with that!! You know, at center time, when you have a group that needs a lot of your attention…but you also have that group that always seems to get into trouble and never gets their work done-but when you ask them what they have been doing you can never get a straight answer???? Well, just put this little guy in the middle of that group and hit record while you go and help the other group. It’s like you’re in two places at once!!!! That group now knows that all you have to do is play back to see what was going on!;) Now everyone stays on task and everyone gets the help they need. Yipppeeee!
You could of course, use this for guided reading. Let students read while it is recording. This definitely keeps them on task Now they can play it back to see how they sounded! What a confidence booster!
I also use this device for assessment. Testing things like counting to 100 are so time consuming-but you have to sit and listen intently….NOT ANYMORE!!! Now you can just hit record and let the child count on while you move on to the next student and start testing them. You can play it back later to see how that child did.
This thing is so small, light weight and EASY to use!!! Want to know the best part???? Just like the Easi Speak, this thing requires NOOOOO batteries!!!!!!!!!!! It has a USB cord that you can use to upload and /or CHARGE!!!! Yep, just plug it into your computer and it charges right up!!
Wouldn’t you just LOVE to own one of your very own???? Well, you can!!! Use Rafflecopter below for your chances to win this awesome little gadget!!!! (Side note-this is my first attempt at Rafflecopter! Hope it works!!!;)
