The Memory Stack: New Technologies Harness Talking for Writing.
Gannon, Maureen T.
In this paper, an elementary school teacher describes her experiences with the Memory Stack--a HyperCard based tool that can accommodate a voice recording, a graphic image, and a written text on the same card--which she designed to help her second and third grade students integrate their oral language fluency into the process of learning how to write. Detailed descriptions are presented of three second grade students' experiences with the Memory Stack. All three children were experiencing extreme difficulty acquiring the technical and linguistic skills necessary to relate symbols to speech. Suggestions are provided for how this type of pedagogy can be developed further for use in diagnosis of language problems and in assessment of language development. Eight figures depict the students' projects. (Author/AEF)
