F. Ways To Use In The Classroom


 Here are some ideas we came up with on how you can use Voice Thread in the classroom

1. Newspaper articles can be posted to discuss.

  2. Math concepts can be explained through a power point and students can ask

questions about certain points by doodling over it.

  3. Students can comment on a picture of a piece of art

  4. A political cartoon can be used to start a discussion about a current event

  5.  Photo from a school field trip can be shared and commented on by studetns

to help create a sense of community

6. Pictures of a science project can be posted and students can discuss whether the hypothesis was reached.

7.  Invitations to school events can be posted and students can create excitement about it with their comments
