I got a great email this week:
I teach Kindergarten and received an IPod listening station through a Donors Choose grant. However, I have been unable to use it :( I cannot find anyone who can help me - read your blog - and thought I would ask if you know what I need to do. I want to be able to record my own books and use them at the listening station. I have tried recording through the headphone mike connected to the Ipod. I can hear the story aloud, but the sound will not go through the listening system. Then I recorded using Audacity (Lame), saved it as an Mp3 file, and synced it through my ITunes account. It shows on the Ipod and in ITunes, but there is no sound. Any suggestions? I received this last February and still haven't been able to use it! :( Very disappointed.
Thanks for any ideas!
I have iPods but I do not use them for listening station. So... how do you use iPods for listening stations and how do you record your own stories?
(I am thinking I could do this for listening and following directions activities.)
Thanks for all your tech support here!
