What an awesome tool to use in the classroom! I love this recorder! It is very lightweight and easy to operate for students in any grade. The recording can be played back instantly or easily downloaded on the computer with a USB cord. It charges by connecting it to the computer and doesn’t take long to charge. I used it several classroom situations and was truly surprised how well it picked up sound. I sat in the back of a class and recorded the small group session in front of me. It was able to pick up what was said even though the teacher and students spoke softly. I was very impressed with how clear the playback sounded.
I could see using this in small groups where you want to record several people speaking. The 4 omnidirectional microphones are very effective in picking up the sound. I think this would be great to use when correcting speech, working on reading fluency, practice vocabulary and many other language lessons. It would also be great to use when recording group work so that even though the teacher might not be with that group, the work can be recorded and documented. The price for this is $99.99 and I believe is well worth the money!
