K-4 Technology Teacher
I'm a K-4th grade technology teacher, and have used VoiceThread for years with all of those grades for a variety of purposes. I've used it to have students share stories they have written and illustrated, to share visually and verbally some of Dr. Martin Luther King's dreams and some of their own ideas for improving the world, to create a "Where in the World Am I" presentation where each 4th grader uploads a picture with clues and gives more clues verbally, to help the user guess the country, had 1st graders create books on what they're Thankful for (around Thanksgiving time), and more. I would love to use VoiceThread to connect my students with students in other states and/or countries, in any or all of the K-4th grades. I'm open to ideas, whether it's related to what I've described above or something completely different...fiction, nonfiction, book reviews...learning about similarities and differences in different locations and cultures, sharing stories students have created/illustrated and commenting, surveys, sharing perspectives and solutions to real world problems...the sky's the limit. Also able to interact through skype, wikispaces, and blogging.
2012-2013 school year.

A group of 17 first year university EFL students (18, 19 years old) will upload a photo of a meal or dish they are about to eat, and describe it in English on VoiceThread. We hope students in other countries will do the same, and we can all enjoy the presentations and make comments and ask questions. The students are low intermediate level.

I just started as an IT teacher at a brand new American International School in Bangkok, Thailand. I service students in PK-7th grades, and PK starts at age 2! I am BRAND NEW to Voicethread and would very much like to collaborate with others from the US (CA if possible, since we have adopted CA curriculum) via VoiceThread and possible Skype. I am thinking probably grades 4 and up.
