So what can you do with a class and your voice?
Can the students do it? Do they have a choice?
There are many fun thing to create with Voicethread,
Images, videos and comments of what you said.
- there is a great wiki called Voicethread 4 Education full of tons of resources
- I really like the ideas in this Google presentation
- some of the good ideas:
- creating one account for the class and different identities for each student; students can they respond/comment on something you have posted
- making up a story to go with pictures
- displaying student art work
- recording reflections
- documenting science
- the wiki also has pages specific to various grades with other lesson ideas such as:
- creating a class "book" Voicethread with each student's artwork and accompanying comment as a page
- book reviews
- the wiki definitely has many good ideas
Some other things I noted:
- the Voicethreads can take quite a long time to load onto a page and the video/audio comments can also take a while to load; would this be frustrating for students?
I found this good article on Voicethreads at Edutopia: VoiceThread extends the classroom with interactive multimedia albums
Bill Ferriter has a good handout for commenting on Voicethreads on his blog The Tempered Radical in the post Using Voicethread for collaborative thought . . .
That's it for now.
