I just finished creating a presentation using VoiceThread, which is an online presentation tool that has great potential for use in education. Through VoiceThread, teachers can create interactive online lessons. It allows users to present material in a variety of formats (text, audio, video), thus fitting the different needs and learning styles of a variety of students. The platform also provides a model of an engaging technology tool, as it enables students to contribute their own responses in writing, or through audio or video.
The presentation I have created should show you some of these features. In addition, it explores some of the ways educators can use social networking tools like Diigo and Twitter in your classroom. Please let me know what you think!
