Audacity and Listening Posts

Marama wants more listening post stories, particularly ones based on what the children are reading. She runs a bi-lingual class and would like to have some in maori as well. I suggested that she record her voice using the free software Audacity (available in Windows and Mac, but I would use GarageBand in Mac), export as a Wav file and burn it onto a cd. It can also be exported as an mp3 file and downloaded on mp3 players like iPods. iPods can be listened to by individual children using head phones or more children can hear the story by putting the iPod onto a dock fixed to a speaker system.
