Fw: [CALL] Re: SageGauge
- Hi gang--
I got this message at the CALL IS elist, and it looks like an interesting experiment.
If any of you are interested in trying it out, please contact Lindsay directly. (I don't know anything more than what is in the email below.)
They will be presenting at TESOL Dallas, if you are going, so you'll have a chance to speak with the developers directly.

Dear CALL Community,
I'd like to invite you to try free software I just developed for language classrooms, SageGauge (http://www.sagegauge.com).
I created it after getting feedback from my students at NYU about how
they felt they could learn better and how a better cross-cultural
environment could be established in class.
SageGauge works by generating avatars for students.
You can then touch or click on the avatars to do a variety of things,
like take and send attendance, send feedback on grammar or
pronunciation, reward participation, and send academic scores. To set
up, all you need are your students' names and e-mail addresses. You can
use and access it on tablets, smart-phones, and computers.
Students also get accounts, where they can see their
comments, scores, and attendance. They can also change the picture for
I've uploaded a few photos at this link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/92519801@N07/. We'll also be at the Developer's Showcase at TESOL '13. If anyone is
interested in being part of the beta, please let me know. The website
also has a lot of information, and videos to help you set up. We'll
have many more features rolling out in February and March, too.
Hope to see some of in Dallas soon!
Best,Lindsay RichmanInstructor, NYU, American Language Institute
