  • -Introduce myself <br /> -If you have questions, I&#x2019;ll be happy to answer during the demo part of the workshop. <br />
  • The goal of this session is to reinforce the importance of conversation in the way we learn, and to introduce to you a simple and effective tool for conducting online digital conversation with and between your students. <br />

  • Talking is part of our biological, social, and educational culture <br /> <br /> It doesn&#x2019;t matter how old you are... <br />
  • ...conversations form the backbone of how we acquire information and explore ideas. <br />

  • Of course, this is not news to anyone who has been on either side of the teacher&#x2019;s desk for the last 30 years (or more). <br /> <br />

  • Why limit a conversation to the time and space of your classroom? <br />
  • Digital conversations can be moderated and organized very easily. <br />
  • Voicethread is a digital tool for conducting conversations using text, audio, and video. Several years ago, the makers of the product, recognizing its potential for education, created a sort of &#x201C;walled garden&#x201D;. Ed.voicethread.com has become a model for how Web 2.0 tools can be customized to the needs of educators and students and leveraged into paid products. <br />
  • It&#x2019;s sometimes called a &#x201C;group audio blog&#x201D;, but like so many other Web 2.0 tools, it is difficult to describe something like Voicethread in terms of existing, familiar tools. <br />
  • <br />

  • You might think that you need to grade the comments that students make. Maybe you figure they&#x2019;ll need the &#x201C;stick&#x201D; to motivate them to participate, or that they won&#x2019;t really try unless they know if will affect their grade. Most of the time, however, these kids do the work even if it isn&#x2019;t graded. <br /> This evaluation (from Bill Ferriter&#x2019;s Digitally Speaking Wiki) is an example of a meta-cognitive, reflective style of assessment that works well for Voicethread. <br />
