As part my of my first SFU inquiry, I plan on working with the students to improve their oral French.
My question for this inquiry is:
“How can I use voice recorders to improve my students’ oral French (pronounciation + rhythm & expression)?
To help me with this project, I have purchased a few voice recorders. I also own two video cameras and an iPad and I plan on using them with the students in class. If your child owns an iPod that allows him/her to record his voice, feel free to send him to school with it. As mentioned in the past, I cannot be held responsible for lost or stolen items but rest assured that my classroom is always locked and that I do not intend on leaving it unsupervised. I take care of my personal belongings and I will expect the same from my students.
Please note that the only people I will be sharing my results with in April are other teachers enrolled in this Field Studies program. At this point, I do not intend to continue further but should I change my mind, I will contact you personally to ask for official permission. No names will be given and I do not plan on using images of my students for this project.
If you have any other questions about this, feel free to come see me. I am on supervision duty every morning for the next few weeks and this is always a great time to touch base.
Thanks for your support with this!
