Using QR Codes to Record and Access Student Speaking

Once you get a hang of the process, creating QR codes to access student recordings is fairly straight forward and students can quickly learn to do it themselves.  There are multiple ways to use QR codes in the foreign language classroom (look for an upcoming post).

6.To rename a file press the (i) on the right, input a new name and press OK
7.You can then export your file to the Camera Roll, send it in an email, or move to iCloud. Be sure to have an email account set up on the device that you are using.  I always email the audio to myself.

Y0u can use Google drive to upload the audio files or Dropbox .  These directions use Dropbox, but he Google drive works the same way.  Create a folder for the audio. Drag the audio files from email into the dropbox folder.
