MP3 recorders save instruction time

In asking Avi-Chai for MP3 recorders players we hoped to use class time more efficiently: students will spend less time on writing, recording their answers instead, and the time saved will be used for instruction.
As the first four month of the year are ending I checked to see how I’m doing, comparing the material I’ve covered so far this year to last year. The results are encouraging: 3rd and 4th grade are 3 weeks ahead in their respective curriculum compared to last year. 5th grade is only a week ahead, but this is because for the first two months they received intensive instruction in trope and had only half of the regular Hebrew instruction time.
