Web 2.0 Wednesday! YackPack

Do you want to collaborate online using voice recordings? Try YackPack

Once you create a conversation, people can login whenever they want and add their own recordings.

Want to use this in the classroom? Here are some ideas from the website:

  • Grade student work, giving quality feedback and saving yourself time. See how you can do this!
  • Give assignments for oral practice in foreign language learning as well as speaking and presentation skills.
  • Offer encouragement on assignments.
  • Discuss topics as a class, as staff, as a district, and with other educators.
  • Answer questions from students. Watch a short movie showing teacher-student interactions in YackPack.
  • Collaborate with other classrooms.
  • Invite guests to join in from around the world.
  • You can talk in real time - just push and talk. Everyone logged in can hear you.
