    Teaching successfully with emerging technologies requires:
    • A spirit of experimentation
    • Willingness to engage learners in the creation of learning resources (co-creation of content)
    • Willingness to “let go” of control and content presentation approaches to teaching
    • Tolerance of failure

  • 33. Voicethread Tips
    Plan ahead
    Storyboard
    Use “Save to .JPG” option to create images
    Use Keynote or PowerPoint for “heavy lifting” (organizing content)
    Import images & record audio
    Loud speaking can make audio recording cut out
    Be prepared to re-record until satisfied
    Have students choose icons for their accounts
    Use ‘Doodle’ feature sparingly
