Voicethread

This online media album looks like a good tool for students and teachers. It holds all sorts of media (images, video, documents) and does allow commenting in a host of ways. In this example I used audio and doodling, you can also create and comment using video with your webcam. Voicethread is educator friendly offering k12 teachers a free "pro" subscription. With the pro account you can create "entitities" for your students. You can see a great project using voicethread here. It will be a great addition to use with the smartboard.

I will be trying this out with 2nd graders later this week.

Very cool application of voicethread. I could definitely see this application being used by teachers and students to share work.

I am collecting examples of how educators are using Voicethread in their classroom or for professional development on a wiki at: http://voicethread4education.wikispaces.com/

My plan is to share these examples with other technology teachers who provide professional development in their schools.

Feel free to add your own examples or links to resources. Thanks in advance,
Colette
