Hi David,

I think its a good idea. You might want to look into using Moodle to help
create it. Moodle is good at collecting info from many students and giving
it to the teachers in a form that is easy for them to use.

One thing I noticed at GPA was that the 4th graders had a very hard time
writing even one sentence about their work. Typing, spelling, writing
sentence are all challenging still, and I'm really wondering how much
reflection we will be able to get from the younger grades.  Although writing
is always good, our goal is to have the students think about the work they
just did so it would be good to have an alternative input where writing
skills would not be an impediment.   It would be nice to have it easy to
have an alternative of recording speech.

I think Moodle may have a module that does that already. I have the Moodle
book on using Moodle to teach foreign language on order.  We still have to
get all our drivers to work and headsets for the students but maybe it will
not be too hard. :)
