So you wanna use Voicethread

Here is an opportunity to work together in a meaningful way and students can reflect on their work and the work of their peers is key to being a 21st Century Learner.

How is powerpoint different from Voicethread?

Voicethread is a multimedia slideshow that allows users anywhere to collaborate.

There are 3 basic steps:

1. Create a free account
2. Upload images, documents, and videos to the presentation
3. Share

Yep. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Once the Voicethread is created watch the magic happen. Comments can be left around each part of the slideshow either by voice, text or video. Everything can be embed on a webpage or in a blog for even easier sharing.

Just a couple of ideas:
  • Instead of having students create a Power Point, create a Voicethread that they get to narrate and share with the class. Other students can leave comments on the different parts of the presentation.
  • Book Reviews
