Welcome to the Voicethread 4 Education wiki

Hello and welcome to the VoiceThread 4 Education wiki. This wiki was started by Colette Cassinelli (http://twitter.com/ccassinelli) but because of contributors like YOU - it has grown to be comprehensive collection of VoiceThread examples from students and BRUH. nd groups. The purpose of this wiki is to gather examples of how educators are using Voicethread in their classrooms (or for professional development) and to share those examples.

With VoiceThread, group conversations are collected and shared in one place from anywhere in the world. All with no software to install. A VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to navigate slides and leave comments in 5 ways - using voice through a Facebook Fan Page (with a mic or telephone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). Share a VoiceThread with friends, students, and colleagues for them to record comments too. Users can doodle while commenting, use multiple identities, and pick which comments are shown through moderation. VoiceThreads can even be embedded to show and receive comments on other websites and exported to MP3 players or DVDs to play as archival movies. (https://voicethread.com/about/features/)

What will you find here?
  • Samples submitted by teachers of VoiceThread projects made by their students
  • VoiceThreads used for professional development
  • Resources, including other websites that contain VoiceThread examples
  • Best Practices - tips and ideas of how to best implement VoiceThread in your curriculum
