How I Use It
I use it several ways. It's great for showing short video demos and explanations. And I really like it as a way for students to hand in homework and get feedback from peers and teachers. It's great, I use it every week. Student upload their homework and post a comment explaining what they did. Later, other students and the teacher visit each student page to add comments about the homework and offer suggestions for improvement.
My Take
Voicethread is free online app that enables students and teachers to easily share work and record spoken or video discussion of the work in an asynchronous environment. I like everything about this teaching tool. I can't imagine how it could serve students of teachers better, it's simply awesome and everyone should want to use it. Voicethread will revolutionize your classroom discussions as well as provide opportunities for students to create their own expressive interactive communication solutions.
