I gave a demo yesterday to a group of very tech-savvy educators in Sioux Falls of how VoiceThread could be used with various learning styles. Some of the participants had already heard of the resource and several had used it with their students. One project in particular really caught my interest.
One teacher (I’m so sorry that I don’t recall her name!) works with students who are hearing impaired. For a unit on Romanesque vs. Gothic architecture, she had her students take pictures of various cathedrals and buildings in the Sioux Falls area, then use VoiceThread to make comments and to draw on/highlight areas on the photo that classified it as Romanesque or Gothic. One student used the voice comment feature to work on his voice inflection for feedback from his teacher. He then used the video comment feature to sign those same comments to his fellow classmates. How cool!!!
