In social studies, students were able to have a “conversation with Socrates” through the use of a prerecorded voice recording of Socrates. The voice recording was put into their social studies folder in Showbie*. All the 6th graders were able to access the voice recording through Showbie. Students were then able to create their own responses to the thought-provoking questions from Socrates. The next step was to record their answers to make a conversation.
Step 1 – Listen to the Socrates recording located in Showbie
Step 2 – Record your responses in Garage Band, iMovie, or QuickVoice
Step 3 – Import recordings into Garage Band or iMovie
Step 4 – Create a new project, splice, and combine the recordings to make a conversation
Step 5 – Be sure to save your project
*Showbie is a wonderful tool to help make your classroom paperless. It can help to get materials to all students, groups of students, or even individuals.
