Woices is an application that lets you put audio and a map side by side.

For this activity simply follow the instructions below and add your voice to our map. We would love to hear from people from all over the world in English and their native languages. Please fill up our map.

What to say -

My recording says:
"We are from Bettendorf, Iowa, USA. We go to Bettendorf Middle School. We are looking to make friends with people from around the world."

Please record the same sentences in the two languages(if you can), obviously with your school and country details. The reason for recording the same sentences is that we can then get the students to more easily pick out possible keywords in other languages if we know what is being said. So, for example, if the last thing we all say is 'We are looking to make friends with people from around the world!' then the kids will listen for that and maybe even try saying it themselves.

Here are the steps for adding your audio and location to the map. Currently it does not show up properly on the front of the wiki and I'm working on getting that fixed.
1. Login to my account at http://www.woices.com
username = coffeechug
password – coffeechug
2. Click on ‘Create’ and select ‘Record or upload new echo.’
3. Follow the steps – first you will add your pin to the map, then give it a title, then record your sound or upload one you have already prepared.
4. Then go to the ‘You’ tab and select ‘Your Woice.’ Then select Coffeechug Wiki, which is listed under ‘Your Walks’ at the centre of the page. The Lunch Box Project Classes walk page will open up.
5. On the right hand side underneath the map, choose ‘Edit list of echoes’ from the More Actions menu.
6. Drag the echo you just created from the ‘Your Echoes’ column on the right to the ‘Walk Echoes’ column on the left.
7. Then click ‘Return To Walk’ at the bottom left hand side and back on the walk page you should see your audio in the player at the left and your pin on the map on the right.
If you have any problems, please let me know.
