Quiet little mouse
« on: October 28, 2014, 09:04:52 PM »
I have an online student, a shy, unconfident 11 year-old girl who won't speak up. Face to face, I'd get her to stand up, move around and project her voice; but my video phone screen is tiny- even my hand talking is restricted.  She is so quiet that not only can't I hear her half the time, she's not even enunciating, and when she repeats something louder I usually still can't quite make out the words, let alone get at her pronunciation.

Ideas?
And there is no liar like the indignant man... -Nietszche

Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task. -William James

Practically speaking? If you're restricted to using your phone to have class and the issue is not being able to hear her rather than finding a way to make her speak louder, buy a pair of speakers and run them through your phone.
