Pace Recorder is a FREE Android app that allows you to train your child’s voice to speak at an appropriate pace for presentations.
I know being a mom of two kids that are part of the Classical Conversations homeschool group, this is an app that I would use all the time. My children have to prepare and present a presentation each week. I would especially use this app with my older child, who has a tendency to rush.
This Pace Recorder app, has a simple pace indicator. Blue is when they are relaxed, green is for a balanced pace and red is when they are excited and speaking too quickly. It takes about 10 seconds for the Pace Recorder to turn a certain color. Your child can watch the screen as they speak and notice right away if they need to change the pace of their speaking or not.
As a tutor of Classical Conversations, I believe that this app would be very helpful with the older kids as they do their presentations in the classroom. Allowing them to change their pace during their presentation, would help to create an inner understanding of what good presentation pace sounds like.
You can also play back the recording to review how they did. Allowing them to hear themselves and understand where they need to slow down or speed up their speaking in the presentation. Nothing is better than allowing your kids to learn a new skill by seeing it themselves.
