Kecia Waddell, here... I am a high school Special Education English teacher of students with learning disabilities (reading and written expression), Autism Spectrum Disorders, emotional impairments in Metro Detroit. I use technology daily with my students. I am passionate about how technology when thoughtfully used can empower students and teachers alike.

Voicethread has been a powerful for giving my students multiple ways to demonstrate their construction of meaning. It has also given me a dynamic way to stimulate close and critical thought around a given subject matter. See my VT around Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men http://voicethread.com/share/1052340/

Further, I use Voicethread to promote class discussion around sensitive subject matter. See my VT around the subject of the N-Word http://voicethread.com/share/1460111/
I made this VT available for anyone to use. Other teachers have found its value and have used it. I am very pleased.
