Blog Post #12 -Doing the Assignment
I learned a lot about the Voice Thread through this assignment.The tutorials are very well done. The voice thread is very easy and fun to use. It has many features that can enhance a lesson through technology. There are so many ways to comment and there are so many ways to create a good voice thread. Anytime a tool like this is used, it enhances learning.
VT also has negative aspects. Not being able to use youtube is a definite negative point because people are so familiar with it and use it all the time. There are so many thought provoking videos on youtube. I wanted to use one. Maybe in the future, this will be possible.
I chose a picture from Google images that I could use in the study of Alabama History. This is a picture that can excite students about the information they will be receiving in the next chapter.
I enjoy using the voicethread. It is a nice change of pace.
