Non-Traditional Online Students
This was a project for Electronic Word English Class at Eastern Oregon University. It is a great example of what can be done with VoiceThread for distance learning students. Both students that worked on the project live in different states.
Upstanders, Not Bystanders - Gail Desler and Natalie Bernasconi
The Upstanders, Not Bystanders VoiceThread addresses an essential aspect of digital citizenship by asking the question, "What does it mean to be an upstander?" - as opposed to a bystander, bully or target/victim. In less than a year since its March 2013 posting, this dynamic VoiceThread has had over a 1000 visitors and is quickly becoming a tool for connected learning by inviting and honoring stories of what it means to cross the line from bystander to upstander.
5th and 6th-grade Digital literacy project from Julienne Hogarth
I gave the learners the images and they researched and posted information and comments about Dale Chihuly's life and art. The learners were thrilled to use Voicethread as a tool in their learning as well as becoming very excited about the art work.
5th Grade - Digital portfolios for student-led parent confs.
As we're an international school, I was looking for a seamless way that relatives in other countries (Grandparents, parents away working etc) could view, comment, give feedback on the digital portfolio.
8th Grade - Refugee stories from Creative Technology
VoiceThread has enabled refugee communities to share stories about what it means to come to a new country to live.
