How I Use It
I've used this app for reading fluency practice. Students practiced reading a short text (e.g., picture book) and then recorded themselves reading out loud. They can also add music at the beginning and end to make it sound like a professional audio book recording.
My Take
This is a great app for music making, but also a great app for recording students reading.
