Link to my Voicethread:

Voicethread is a great tool for creating a slideshow of images, videos, and documents.  Those that have been given permission can post comments on the slides via text, audio, and video.  It is a great way to share your work with others and get their insight via their comments.

My Voicethread covers Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.  Facebook is a social networking site with millions of users.  Facebook could be used in an instructional setting as a creative way for teachers to send out messages or assignments.  A Facebook post is a quick and easy alternative to a mass email.  YouTube is a video sharing website.  There are millions of videos covering almost any subject you can think off.  Adding a YouTube video to a lecture will mix things up a bit and help get the message across to a wide array of diverse learners.  Twitter is a social networking and microblogging site.  Teachers can follow organizations in their specific field of study and get easy access to industry newsletters and research articles.  These can then be easily tweeted along to their followers, possibly students or teachers.
