I can’t wait to start using Voicethread next Term! I first heard about this tool at the AATE conference in July, and it turns out a few of my colleagues have been using it for awhile…if anyone has links to Voicethread projects they have done with their students I’d love to see them!
My initial thoughts are that I would like to use Voicethread for:
- Year 9 poetry unit – students compose poetry and read it aloud with accompanying images for other students to view. Perhaps also some collaborative poetry writing?
- Debating Training – One week debates. Students can record a real debate. Starts with 1st Affirmative speaker, then following speakers get 24 hours each to respond; runs like a ‘real’ debate.
