This is a cute tool for younger students. Children can use an animated emoticon to express the emotion they are feeling at that moment. They can then add a short sentence saying why they are feeling like that. Finally they can tweet or get the link and share it with their friends or with their teacher. Might be a good tool to get some feedback on the teacher's classes!
Free and easy to use!

This is a very new tool for recording a voice message. All you need is a microphone! There's no time limit which is a bonus. After recording your message, you can easily send it to a friend via mail or post it on your site. As a language teacher, I could see this being a great tool for getting students to send specific messages to eachother or to their teacher. Some ideas that occur to me could be the following:

A Dictation: - students could send messages to eachother. The receiver could listen and write down the message.

A Greeting: Students could send greeting messages to their teacher or introduce themselves at the beginning of the year.

Narrative Stories: Students or teachers could record themselves reading short narrative stories. The other students would listen to the story and 'listen for specific information'.

Pronunciation: Different accents could be recorded and students would have to listen and try to identify them.

I'm sure there are many ways in which VOCAROO could be used!
