Voice Thread

Voice Thread is a tool that again relates to group coversations. Voice Thread is about sharing multimedia slideshows that contain images, videos and documents. It is a site where people can easily work their way through the pages of the slideshow to leave comments using either their voice, written text, audio or video. Although I don't personally believe that I will incorporate this into my teaching practices, I do think it could be beneficial to use for peer evaluation tasks. students would be able to each create their own slideshow and then other students are able to comment on these by leaning any of the 5 different types of comments. Because of the many different types of commenting that can be used, the tool is seen to be mutlimodal. This in turn links to Oliver's Learning Design Framework.
