MY THOUGHTS IN ALL CAPS
Presenters: Brent Anderson, Susanne Long
Session Description: Interested in being tech-savvy to handle your digital natives? Using VoiceThread allows students to have an authentic voice, learning with the world instead of about the world. VoiceThread activities are asynchronous activities that differentiate instruction and allow students to create and moderate instructional conversations. Today’s students have an unrelenting passion to interact, use this web-based tool to capture content knowledge, assess learning, and publish privately and globally.
Picking up where Daniel Pink left off, VoiceThread should help you incorporate visual arts into the other classes.

NOW HAVING A COMMENTING SESSION ON A VOICETHREAD CREATED BY THE PRESENTERS. THOUGH THE THREAD HASN’T BEEN SHARED YET SO I CAN’T POST THE ID HERE OR COMMENT FROM MY OWN COMPUTER.
Voice Thread Created for the Session
GOOD INTRODUCTORY SESSION ABOUT VOICETHREAD…WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT IF EVERYONE IN HERE WAS ABLE TO JUMP INTO THE THREAD AND ADD THEIR OWN COMMENTS, BUT NOT EVERYONE HAS COMPUTERS AVAILABLE OR WIRELESS. SO MANY OF THESE TOOLS ARE BEST WHEN THEY ARE ACTUALLY USED, NOT TALKED ABOUT.
