This is the book to give teachers the confidence to use audio equipment in their classrooms and to really engage with students right across the curriculum.There is a need to motivate and in some cases re-engage students who feel that the classroom of 2007 means nothing to them - it does not speak in their language or culture, or communicate to them in a way that seems natural. They are the mp3, mobile phone generation, used to bits of on-demand information. Equally, they are lacking in the speaking and listening skills vital for future economic life; the skills so long regarded as 'soft skills' that form the basis of any job interview.This book gives practical advice to teachers on how to use audio in the classroom across the curriculum and put audio as used today into context. Anyone can record audio - it's how you do it that transforms ordinary into extraordinary.The author draws on his own experience with classroom trials from the UK and China, as well as case studies and contributions from academics, consultants and broadcasters.
