How I Use It
I have used it for identity stories, and I've used it for reading journals and/or logs. I've had students upload their digital photographs for peer critique, which can then also be shared with professionals for authentic critique from experts. The main challenges I have encountered were/are related to ensuring the right number of devices and connectivity to ensure successful recording.
My Take
I love that kids find it engaging to see and hear themselves on their VoiceThreads. I think it is intuitive and easy to use. You need consistent Internet, multiple accounts and devices, and quiet spaces for multiple students to successfully record simultaneously
