MeCorder Review and Giveaway

Ready for a giveaway? It's been a while, right?

I recently had the chance to use the MeCorder Mini Video Recorder from Learning Resources. It's a tiny little thing, but it does a lot for the size and price.
Even little kids will be able to operate it quite easily. Just by pushing one button, they can record themselves reading or speaking.


The picture on the screen is actually better than I thought it would be. It charges via USB and the charge lasts quite a while. You can also transfer the video that is captured to your computer via the same USB cable. It's magnetic, so you can just pop it on your board and always have it handy.


I have a couple of students who receive speech therapy. I've been having them work together to read into the recorder while they're practicing their sounds. It's great for them to actually hear themselves and  see where they're placing their tongue.

The only drawback to the MeCorder is that the recording time is only 30 seconds. If it was at least a minute long, then it could be used for running records, fluency practice or even to read a piece of writing. However, even with the short recording time, there are still plenty of great uses for it. While I was testing it out, I recorded directions for a center activity and left it in the center for the kids to play when they got there. They thought that was pretty hysterical for some reason!

Here it is in action. I H-A-T-E myself on video, so sharing this with you is a huge step for me WAY out of my comfort zone. See how much I love you guys!?
