Nearly a year ago I posted Reading Self Assessment Workflows. I continued to have my pupils record themselves reading, self-assess and send to me. I think it is a valuable activity.
I’ve simplified the workflow slightly when Apple started including Voice Memos on iPads. It is not as interesting app as BossJock jr, but that is an advantage. It does one thing well. I think I prefer apps that do that and can connect to others as opposed to more complex apps.
This is the workflow for pupils:
- Record reading in Voice Memos. Change the title from the location to what is read and pupil’s name.
- Share to Notes, voice memo is embedded in a note.
- Listen to recording, write self assessment in Note. (I have prompt cards to help).
- Airdrop note to teacher iPad, choosing Classroom rather than user. This is auto accepted and waits in the Classroom app for me to pick up.
I ask the pupils to name and date the note.
