Social and Collaborative Media

Posted: July 15, 2012 in Uncategorized

I have created a Voicethread to share with you the uses of a few social networking tools in education.  Those tools are Blogs, Twitter, and Google Docs.  I could use this specific presentation to share with my school the educational values of social networking.

The Voicethread tool can be used in a variety of ways in the educational setting.  Teachers can use Voicethread to create a slideshow that can include images, text, and videos and can be shared around the world.  Students could watch a video on Voicethread and then leave a comment and have a class discussion.  One idea that I had for P.E specific would be to upload photos of a skill being performed in a sequence and have students comment on what each step is and how it affects the end product.  A great feature of this tools is that if offers five different ways you can comment on a thread.  Voicethread can also be used as a way to update students who have missed time at school or are on a home schooling program.
