Hi Joe
I was just wondering why you suggested changing pitch of voice using audacity. Voki has a range of effects, such as chipmunk, speedy, reverb, etc. which can be added by clicking on the FX tab under the "Give it a voice" menu once you choose the input method - that would seem to be easier unless you wanted an excuse to use audacity too!

Hi Colin,

You're absolutely right although I'd recommend recording in Audacity anyway as you can edit your speech which will help you to remember it and also I find enabling the microphone to record straight into Voki can be problematic (error messages etc. Personally, I prefer the voice effects you can produce in Audacity too.

Hi Colin,

I used Audacity primarily to edit out unwanted sections of audio, and whilst they were there they could change pitch. Will try out the FX in Voki at some point though,

Hello Joe,
My name is Aaron Griffin and I am with Dr. John Strange's EDM 310 class at The University of South Alabama, and we are learning about all the inovative ways that technology can be used in todays classroom. I have seen some wonderful ideas regarding your latest post. Using ipads for language comprehension is a very creative way of educating. This is just another form of using technology in the classroom for the future success of students. Thank You for your ideas!

Hi Joe,
My name is Carrie Tucker and I am a student at the University of South Alabama. This semester I am in Dr. Strange's Educational Media class (EDM 310) and I have learned many new ways to incorporate technology into education. Through this blog and watching the videos I realized that technology can actually aid in every subject. The ideas were very creative avenues to learn and use these different languages in a fun, unique way rather than the traditional ways. Using the ipad, apps, doodle buddy, etc, are all great ways to keep students engaged and interested in learning. Thanks for sharing the various ways that technology can be used in the classroom.

Hi Joe,
My name is Courtney Muse and I am a student at the University of South Alabama. I am in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class. We are already into week six and I have learned many ideas about education. This really sticks out to me because it could not only be used in the classroom but it could be also carried over into homes. This is a great learning tool to use with very young children at home. I wish this could have been a tool in many of our foreign language classes throughout my education. This is a great idea and I hope that this concept reaches teachers across the world!
