Learning Log – Voicethread

This was my first experience using Voicethread.  I found it to be a rather easy tool to use.  Reading “An Educator’s Guide to Voicethread” in advance to actually getting started was very helpful.  I was impressed with the options for selecting images.  Instead of just having the option to upload images from your computer or search online, there were publicly available Flickr images as well as images from the New York Library.  I was also impressed with the variety of media that could be utilized.  Voicethreads can include images, video, and documents as well.  Comments can be made in a variety of ways too.  Text, audio, and video can all be used to make comments. 

Voicethread is a great tool for sharing slide shows with others and receiving their feedback.  Feedback is left in the form of comments, and only those with permission can post comments.  This collaborationallows users to take advantage of getting many different points of view. 

Voicethread has helped me address AASL Indicator 1.4, which states: “Candidates demonstrate how to collaborate with other teachers to plan and implement instruction of the AASL Standards for the 21st-Century Learner and state student curriculum standards.”  By making my Voicethread available to my classmates, they can view it and post comments as we collaborate toward planning and implementing instruction of these standards.
