It's Been A While...

OK... OK... So it's been a while since my last post. Well... about a year actually.

Anyhow, I just returned from a great conference called The Education Show in Birmingham, UK and I wanted to share a few things that I found interesting. I thought that this would be a great venue to do this, so hope to hear your comments as I continue to post new findings or interesting things.

I thought this little microphone was just the coolest and I hope you agree.

Here's what it does:

-Record voices, sounds or music on the move directly into MP3 or WAV files
-Play back MP3 or WAV files using the built-in speaker or headphone socket
-Connects to your PC like a thumb drive to manage the MP3 files that were created

-It's a great way for children to do role-play interviewing, drama, note-taking and pod-casting. Kids can be the roving reporter or singing star, without being tethered to a PC.

It Features:

-Built-in Rechargeable battery
-Great audio quality for record and playback
-64MB memory for 2 hours of high-quality recording
-USB connector for direct connection to PC or MAC
-Audacity Software included (which we already use)
-Neck-strap included ( harder to lose :)
-Intuitive interface

You have to admit.... this thing is great, and I can't think of one kid who wouldn't have fun with it.

OK.... Let's hear it
