Voicethread www.voicethread.com www.voicethread.com Why use this tool? Opinion based, collaborative pieces Students hear themselves. Oral language development Interesting way to share and gain feedback. Once students have exposure it’s easy to use Wider audience for work Differentiation – meets diverse needs Meaningful assessment
Glogster www.glogster.com Online interactive posters. Sound, visual, video, movement. Potential for language learning, presentation cross curriculum. Embed easily into wiki for sharing Class examples: http://tererengaroom4.wikispaces.com/Photos www.glogster.comhttp://tererengaroom4.wikispaces.com/Photos
How do I teach these tools? Either myself or a student models with the data projector/activboard briefly to reading group. Use your experts! Pass it on (reading group/individual). Loop Recording time practice then read, classroom requires silence. Recording 3, 2, 1. Emphasize ruining it for others. Activities room. Setup laptop and microphone external. Integrated with guided reading programme. Let the children experiment, make mistakes and learn. Skills are transferable. You don’t need to know every inner working of the tool for it to work.
