I really think that this application could have great potential. The only problem I see is the cost for the use. My Voice Thread is found at: http://radicalion.wikispaces.com/Voice+Thread+Example

Wordle & VoiceThread Lessons

Love both Wordle & VoiceThread. I posted a voice thread on Harry Potter. I have read these books with some of my 8th graders and the discussions we've had have been fabulous and to incorporate voice thread in would bring them to the next level. Here is the link to the voice thread... http://voicethread.com/share/2161056/
Hope it works. I have been having issues with posting things. Wordle is also great for helping students with spelling and vocab. I see great uses for Wordle with my 1st and 2nd grade classes in computer and with my 4-8th grade in collaboration with the Spanish teacher for our joint effort to bring Christmas Around the World to life for our students & their families.

VoiceThread in kindergarten

I really believe in integrating technology in our curriculum. Teaching kindergarten has some challenges on how we can use wonderful tools like VoiceThread to enhance learning. I came across a wonderful website that helps our student’s Global Awareness by connecting them with other children outside our walls around the world using VoiceThead; responding to the call of Framework for the 21st century Learning.

Carmen, we're on the same boat. Working with an under-resourced student population and school district can be frustrating, but I've found ways this year to get by. For projects where I needed the internet, e.g. You Tube, Skype, etc, I made sure to use class time to make it happen. When my district block certain websites, I would export them to my desktop and email them to myself. I am still unsure about how I will use the thread, but I know that students will appreciate you going the extra mile to find a way to get them online.

I created a simple voice thread with a photo. I do not have a microphone at home and would rather use a verbal prompt for this exercise, but typed in my comment this time. I would use this as part of a "center" for my students and allow them to comment when they are there. For this thread, students would give adjectives to describe something/someone in the photo provided. I would also love to hear if they have had experiences with a parade, and would ask them to tell me about it in my verbal prompt.

Sherri, the following is not a Voicethread, per se, but I think what Khan does is a wonderful application of what can be done with Voice thread for the benefit of students.

I agree with Suzanne, there are many great applications for using Voicethread in the classroom and I´m excited to start planning for the fall and fitting Voicethread into my World Language curriculum.

My VoiceThread is an introduction to the story "Where the Wild Things are" in Spanish. It´s basic, but I would like to develop it into an actual lesson to use in the Fall to help me engage my student´s interest and provide options for them to communicate in Spanish. Here is the link to my Wikispace portfolio:

VoiceThread in MS math

Thanks for these suggestions - I was wondering how VoiceThread might be used in a MS math class. I like the idea of having students post multiple ways of solving the same problem or or of students posting a problem that they are having difficulty with and having peers respond with suggestion. Please keep us posted on how this works with your students in the fall.

This was fun! I can really see my students enjoying this. I like that there are multiple ways to generate responses and I think that will encourage all of my students to "speak up" - in one way or another.
