Voicethread Tutorials & Resources

A VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to leave comments in 5 ways – using voice (with a mic or phone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). Share a VoiceThread with friends, students, and colleagues for them to record comments too on any Internet enabled computer or mobile device (Apple only as of Fall 2012).

How we’ve used it

TMS has used voicethread in schools to engage multiple literacies, practice speaking and listening skills (esp. with ELLs), allow teachers and students to collaborate and communicate using multimedia asynchronously, allow students to deconstruct media (their own productions, or others’), create open-ended student or class reflection journals, create mixed media “living” publications, and more.
