How I Use It
I think this is a great tool for retelling a story! Students can add images from the camera roll or take their own and add comments on the images. Students have three ways to add comments: text comments, voice comments, or video comments. This app is easy to use and students can share with their VoiceThread Groups (if you have an edu account) or email, message, or tweet. This app can work seamlessly into any lesson and the students really enjoy creating their Voicethreads!
My Take
I love this app because it's very intuitive for children. This app is versatile and can be used for digital storytelling, teacher made tutorials, biographies, and so much more! I think it serves students better because they are able to learn the art of collaboration when designing Voicethreads and also are engaged in the interactive storytelling that this app provides!
