Do you ask students to hand in a rough draft before turning in the final paper? Why not have students send you a rough draft for oral presentations? No, not a paper with words on it, but a recording of what they are going to say. Practice readers’ theater, newscasts, presentations, and more at Vocaroo.com.
Extempore (https://extemporeapp.com/) is an app for practicing speaking. Language instructors create lessons, and students use mobiles to record responses. In Extempore’s words: “Our platform allows students and instructors to share spontaneous speech asynchronously, using their iOS or Android mobile devices.” Instead of 1:1 in-person conferences, language-learning goes digital.
