iPad Class Lessons for Teachers - Voice Thread App

Author: Kedra Taylor

The objective of this Sophia course is for instructors to learn how to use VoiceThread to promote class discussion and student participation in lessons. In addition, instructors will learn how to use VoiceThread on an iPad using the VoiceThread app.

VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia web-based application that allows you to place collections of media like images, videos, documents, and presentations at the center of a conversation. A VoiceThread allows people to have conversations and to make comments by annotating the original artifact using any mix of text, audio, and video. VoiceThread runs inside your web browser or mobile app, so there is no software to download, install, or update. It can be an easy way to differentiate instruction while providing engaging choices to "show" learning, engage in conversation, and think openly and critically about content.
