Sonru is a very relevant and innovative digital communication device. Online video is becoming an integral part of the unfolding digital economy and is a technology that the student will encounter once finished his/her post primary education. Using Sonru the teacher can examine the students’ existing internet and ICT knowledge in the form of online video examinations. By doing so the teacher will also provide the student with a valuable education in using automated online video technology as well as fulfilling the following internet module learning objectives:

  • Access the Sonru website and add to the favourites/bookmark list.

In addition the student will also learn the following ICT skills.

  • Identify and gain knowledge about the following input devices; keyboard, webcam and microphone/headset.

  • Learn how to set up and use the following input device; webcam and microphone/headset.

  • Use these input devices to upload video files onto the internet to be viewed at any time in a safe and secure environment.

English and Communications

Within this subject Sonru is a particularly relevant means of empowering the student to communicate better orally and allow the teacher to incorporate fun and interesting methodologies to their teachings.

This subject also requires the class to carry out interviews and/or vox pops on members of the outside community. This is much more manageable if the teacher requests the individuals involved answer the questions online using Sonru. Sonru allows the individuals to complete the interview at their own convenience while the teacher can show the class the online video file at any time.

In addition to the above the teacher can use Sonru to assist in meeting many other objectives of this subject. The teacher can allocate online video recording time to the student to monitor and examine the students’ oral ability and knowledge in many ways. Below are some examples:

  • Record the student reading literary texts or short stories in different contexts and styles of presenting.

  • Record the student reciting poetry which can be the students own work, (perhaps a competition for best poem could be created by the teacher.)

  • Examine a student’s understanding of the theory covered in the subject like punctuation and other terms and concepts e.g. theme, tone, genre etc.

  • Examine the student’s ability to speak to different people in different contexts and hypothetical scenarios. .

  • The student can present an oral account of a personal experience on video file.

  • Students can record personal reviews of film, radio, television or theatre shows that the teacher requested the students watch.
