Big congratulations to the Michael Faraday School in South London who won runner-up at the 2013 ALT Learning Technologist of the Year awards.

They were praised for their wonderful ‘Talk Aloud’ Project, spearheaded by two of the school’s innovative teachers Gabrielle Khan and Jason Cobb. The project used Audioboo technology to record children in years 3 and 6 talking about their interests and their lives. They could then listen back to their voices and with the help of their teachers, improve their speech and language skills. The results were dramatic and they are planning to extend the use of Audioboo across the school and in different areas of the curriculum.

Gabrielle gave a presentation at the ALT conference that accompanied the awards which was received extremely well.

One conference delegate tweeted:

Another was clearly impressed:

We want to add our congratulations to Gabrielle and Jason and all the children and staff at the Michael Faraday School for winning this prestigious award and our thanks for their ongoing support of Audioboo in the classroom.
