Woices


Woices is a website and Smartphone (Android and iPhone) Application that allows users to record audio for locations on a map.  When you create an account you locate the area on the map and then you can upload an image of the area on the map and then record audio where you tell about that place.  Woices would be a valuable tool to use for students going on a field trip or for geography teachers to have students tell about landmarks in foreign countries.  You could also have students create Woices for their hometowns where they talk about landmarks and history. 

For more information about Woices, see the video below.

    I think woices is a fantastic site for student projects. I am currently a teacher on exchange in Europe and have created a couple of woices ... my best effort to date is
    http://woices.com/walk/804
    about the Canadian Army Battle of The Leopold Canal fought in Belguim in October of 1944. It is just a start and still is in BETA but you will see the potential of a site like this. I can think of lots of ways this app could be uesed in a class ... nature hunt ... history and science projects ... local walks ...
