How I Use It
I have used VoiceThread with my adult learners (K-12 teachers) as an alternative to a traditional discussion board space. These "students" then apply their skills with this tool in their own classrooms.
My Take
Voicethread is a great tool for teachers who want to provide a discussion experience for students while providing choice for students to respond in voice, video, text or images. One aspect of the definition of blended learning is that students have "choice." Voicethread provides that choice in one space.
