The Recap App-Giving All Students a Voice

One of the most difficult aspects of teaching a class of thirty-six students is finding the time to give every student an opportunity to talk.  I recently came across the Recap App, which allows students to answer teacher-created questions via video.  I recently received my 2016 WIDA ACCESS data.  My district moved to WIDA ACCESS 2.0 this year, which meant that every student had to respond to prompts via a microphone and computer.  The notion of completing this type of task caused some students to experience a higher level of anxiety and I noticed a dip in speaking scores.  Using this app is one way that I can turn this trend around in 2017 as well as give every student a voice.  By the way, this app is currently free.
