Google Voice

Getting a Google Voice account and creating instant oral recordings is easy as pie!  Basically, the teacher creates a Google Voice number and then the students or teacher can call in to leave a message.  This produces a recorded audio file to be played back, embedded on a website, emailed, or downloaded to a device.

Why choose to create a Google phone number?
  • Majority of students have a cell phone
  • Students love using their phone
  • Facilitates learning anytime, anywhere, from any source, at any pace
How?
Go to voice.google.com to create an account.
Learn more about Google Voice.

Take Away Activity:
Experiment with Google Voice.  Create an account and phone number.  Create at least one audio file for students OR have students create audio messages.  Share the clips to your public portal.
