There Are Three Basic Ways For K-12 Students To Participate In 1. Have your students sign up for free accounts using valid email addresses. Then add them as contacts and invite them to the VoiceThreads that you make. Students can comment by microphone and text an unlimited number of times for free. 2. Have your students work under your Educator account using our Identities feature. Make sure you fully understand how it works and directly supervise your students when they are logged in under your account. 3. Purchase your students their own account without the requirement of a valid email address by getting a subscription to ed.VoiceThread. Besides providing an accountable environment, the students can create more, have more features, and you can oversee and manage their work.
