MORE ACTIVITIES FOR WORD-BY-WORD AUDIO
Word-by-word audio can be a lot of work to create, but the educational uses are many.
- Students, particularly those who have learning difficulties or need motivation, can record the narration for their own stories.
- By altering the timing of text and audio, you can create a self-paced spelling test, in which a word is pronounced, students spell it, and then with the click of a mouse, the word appears so students can check the spelling.
- Have each student in a program for the gifted and talented, an after school club, or a summer camp, record himself or herself saying a single word, and have each student type his or her word onto a slide. Then, compile all the words into a nonsense story.
- Hold a sing-along or Karaoke event for the class and use the word-by-word format to provide the lyrics to their favorite song. Instead of highlighting each word in red, you might -- in true sing-along fashion -- include a clip art image of a bouncing ball!
