Create Quick Audio QR Codes

Making your classroom displays come alive by adding audio QR codes with students explaining their work is easier than you might expect. Teachers, don’t forget to model expectations by also adding your audio to the posted rubric sharing focused learning goals.

Access Vocaroo on a laptop or Android device (currently doesn’t work to create on iPads) and select “Click to Record”. You will be prompted to allow access to your microphone.

Begin speaking your message. Quality Alert – it is a good idea to have a storyboard written out so that your message is clear and organized when recording.

You have the ability to play back the recording by selecting “Listen” or re-record your message by selecting “Retry”. Warning – if you click “Retry” without first saving the sound byte, the original will be deleted.

Like what you hear? Select “Click here to save” at the bottom of the screen.

What I really like about Vocaroo is that you have the ability to download and save the audio as an MP3 file or share via social media, embed on a website, or generate a QR code. All of these choices make me think about how to “App Smash” using this digital tool.

Are you a Mobile User?

There is an Android App available for recording with Vocaroo!

iPad users? You are out of luck for creating, but you can scan and hear the created audio via scanning the QR code. I hope an app with the creation feature will be available soon!

Share out some examples on how you are using Vocaroo in your classroom.
