Posting to a Voice Thread

NOTE TO 4B: Sorry about the confusion in class today. Upon some reflection, I now realize that our problem was that we were not communicating! Duh! The problem was mine; I failed to to make sure that we began with the end in mind...meaning that I had forgotten that you did not know what a Voice Thread was/is...sorry! Forgot that we had not worked through that.

"Voicethread is an amazing tool with almost limitless possibility for classroom application. Upload images or video and users can make text, audio and video comments, and even draw on the images while commenting. Learn more here. Want examples? Look here, here and here.)"

  • The previous information I borrowed from Mrs. Huff's 21clc site, a wiki dedicated to teams of BHS teachers she is leading as they, too, learn more about Web 2.0 tools.
