Social and Collaborative Media

VoiceThread is an application that allows you to upload images, videos, documents, and presentations. The creator is able to add commentary to the media sequence. The application also allows people to make comments using text, a microphone, a web cam, a telephone, or uploaded audio file right onto the VoiceThread.

This application can be used as an instructional tool for teachers. Teachers can create a VoiceThread on different lessons or topics. Students could view the VoiceThread and make comments on it. This is a way to generate conversations between students about the material they are learning. It also prompts students to create their own questions and communicate with classmates. It is a very interactive tool that will keep students engaged in the learning.
