Voice Thread

A classmate of mine shared about Voice Thread in class the other day.

 

There certainly isn’t a shortage of amazing websites or apps to use in a classroom these days!

 

Using Voice Thread, students are able to make an audio recording of them answering questions posed in class to demonstrate their learning and then their classmates are able to comment on their post.

 

When used by the whole class: What an amazing alternative to the traditional oral presentation!  But, it is also something that could be used as a way to differential a project within a classroom, if you have students who are unable to communicate their understanding in written form (for whatever reason).  Using this technology, or something like it, you would be able to assess their understanding of a science or math concept, say, without having their writing abilities getting in the way.

 

You might find this link to a Voice Thread Education Website of use when you are first starting out using this technology in your classroom.

 

 

Lastly, I’ll leave you with this:
