Bill Ferriter knew his sixth-grade language arts and social studies students spent time online outside of class, surfing the Web and instant messaging. So when he discovered he could engage his kids online in a collaborative, multimedia slide show called a VoiceThread, he decided to see if he could use it to, as he puts it, “steal some of their online minutes.”
“The answer was a resounding yes,” says the teacher at Salem Middle School, in Salem, North Carolina.
Voicethread featured in Edutopia. Great review of the wonderful tool.
