This week I have learned about a wonderful teaching and learning online tool called VoiceThread.  Here is a description of the site (taken from voicethread.com):

VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holdsimages, documents, and videos and allows people to navigate slides and leave comments in 5 ways – using voice (with a mic or telephone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). Share a VoiceThread with friends, students, and colleagues for them to record comments too.  Users can doodle while commenting, use multiple identities, and pick which comments are shown through moderation. VoiceThreads can even be embedded to show and receive comments on other websites and exported to MP3 players or DVDs to play as archival movies.

This week my assignment was to use VoiceThread to communicate with other graduate students and colleagues about a need confronting my classroom or school.  I chose a recent dilemma that my school staff has been debating and discussing:  paper vs. electronic portfolios.

    For those of you who are interested, I found a great blog about VoiceThread use in the classroom. It even provides a rubric for assessing its use on classroom projects! Here is the link: http://digitallyspeaking.pbworks.com/w/page/17791585/Voicethread.
