In the past I have been a part of several postcard exchanges and my students loved receiving the cards and information about each state. This year I wanted to try something new. I created a type of state information exchange using VoiceThread. VoiceThread is a free program at www.voicethread.com. It is a way to have conversations around media...the link is: http://voicethread.com/#q+50+States+.b155765.i832841I am sending this email out during summer in hopes that you will get familiar with VoiceThread and want to use it during the school year... If you have any questions or comments my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!I think this is great way to introduce your class to VoiceThread. I am planning on having my students look up some facts about Oregon and comment on the VoiceThread.
