I recently discovered VoiceThread and can't wait to use it with my students! A VoiceThread "is an online media album that allows people to make comments, either audio or text, and share them with anyone they wish. A VoiceThread allows an entire group's story to be told and collected in one place." Look here to read more about how to use a VoiceThread in the classroom - and they will always be free for educators! Be sure to check out the Browse Page to see how others (including teachers) have used VoiceThread. Here's my first attempt - a sneak peek at second grade for my new students. It needs a little work, especially a better microphone to eliminate the background noise.
