VoiceThread: it’s easy, engaging and pedagogically versatile!
VoiceThread is an interactive collaboration and sharing tool that enables users to add images, documents, and videos to which other users can add voice, text, audio file or video comments – all asynchronously. All reasons why we think it is a tool that can be used to enable transformative learning opportunities for students!
(Catch up on strategic uses: #edtech spotlight overview.)
