What is VoiceThread?
VoiceThread is a tool that allows your students have virtual discussions around media such as images, text, sounds, and video. With VoiceThread, you can create slides (like a PowerPoint), and students can then come in and comment by recording their voice, typing their comments, or video recording themselves using a webcam. Other students can then listen to these comments and make their own contribution to the discussion. Check out this quick explanation of a Voicethread –
All students and staff have a VoiceThread account set up for them already. To access these accounts, go to http://www.ed.voicethread.com.

Have a great week!
