Voicethreads

Voicethread is an excellent tool to use with students of any age. It is especially helpful for fluency. Being able to speak a clear, interesting sentence is no small feat and Voicethread allows the user an instant feedback and a chance to "do it again" and "do it better". It is also a tool that allows for an alternative to writing for sharing ideas. Teachers can sign up for unlimited threads, and students must be 13 years or older to register and they may have 3 free threads. There are purchase options, too. Wordpress allows for embedding the threads directly into a post or page. You need to enable Unflitered MU in the plugin menu. Once you've made a Voicethread, you type this code directly onto the page:
[[voicthread b=xx]] Spell voicethread* correctly and xx= the number assigned to your thread on the last page of a completed thread. (an error comes up from the Voicethread site if I put the actual code in correctly in the sentence above.....)
