Woices (World Voices) is a collaborative tool that allows you to make recordings and then pin them to a map. The idea is that you can narrate your own guided tour of a landmark or area and others can search the map to find recordings relevant to their place of interest. It's available as an app for iPhone, Android and Blackberry and so can be used 'on-the-go' by those with the right devices.


  • As this service is available in any language, MFL teachers could get their learners to create guides for their local area and send them to a partner school in a country of the target language
  • This site encourages not just factual information but also personal anecdotes and memories as well as general musings so learners could produce something imaginative and pin it to a particular monument or location
  • Learners can research specific locations for their literary heritage, place in history, changes through time and much more before uploading the fruits of their labour to the site
  • As part of a Geography (?) project, learners could use QR Codes on their posters or other materials linking to one of their recordings on the map
