VoiceThread Sharing

The 3 and 4 year old Nursery children at British International School, Phuket are one of the youngest groups taking part in the K-2 Building Bridges to Tomorrow global collaborative project.  We have had a wonderful start introducing ourselves to our Group 9 co-classes in Australia and in the United States using VoiceThread to share audio clips and images. 

This was our first class exploration into the Web 2.0 world and we LOVED it!  VoiceThread proves to be an easy and fun tool that young children can use with limited adult support.  It can be integrated into a regular classroom routine in a number of ways including:
            -to extend children who gravitate toward computer/camera play
            -to develop essential speaking and listening skills
            -to share accomplishments with families and the wider school community

I am inspired to continue to use VoiceThread in my classroom and see endless possibilities for mini-projects focused on my learners’ individual interests and needs that I can share virtually with families. 

How do you use VoiceThread in your classroom?
