How I Use It
Assisting students with projects where they record voice/story to slideshow images. It is easiest to make recordings on one computer and add to individual projects.
My Take
Audacity is a lot to look at when you first open up the program, but if you get started by following their tutorials you can be successful. I have worked with Audacity with 2nd grade and I needed to instruct step by step, and 5th grade was very eager to make voice recordings independently. You tube is a great resource for using Audacity's advanced tools.
