Building Narrative through VoiceThread

I like the way VoiceThread allows students to reflect and share their experience. It allows for a degree of differentiation as well. Students may respond in a medium they are comfortable with. Reluctant writers may record audio or video. Two thoughts on this Thread at the moment of posting: first, I took almost all of the pictures; and second, we have not moved to the next level where the students engage in a conversation that expands meaning. If I had it to do over again, individuals or groups would control the cameras and select the images they wanted to share. The resulting thread of information and conversation would be more meaningful. Wonderful things we can do now.

About Alan Stange

I am an Alumni of the University of Regina, class or 1980. After a two year posting with CUSO in Kaduna, Nigeria, I worked in South-central Saskatchewan in rural K-12 schools. I took a year of post-graduate studies and then moved into administration. I stepped out of that role in 2007 and returned to the classroom as an elementary school teacher. I am currently in Moose Jaw.
