Note: Some of these slides are outdated.

The Internet has progressed far beyond what we’ve been calling the “Read/Write Web.” Most of the advanced applications now have interactive features that are sure to engage your students! VoiceThread is a free Web 2.0 application that allows users to have web-based conversations around digital media using text, a video camera, microphone or even a telephone! In this session, see some examples of elementary classes’ VoiceThread projects that include collaborative global learning. Discussion will include how-to, classroom management, social networking and parental permission. Adaptable for all grade levels.
