About VoiceThread

***WSU has recently licensed an online service called VoiceThread  - a “creating, commenting, and sharing system” that allows a user to upload almost any kind of file (videos, documents, audio , etc).  Once uploaded, the item is available for comment (publically or privately) through a number of multimodal ways.  This is a great way to add an element of interactivity to library videos, photographs, tutorials, etc.

   A webcast (approx. 50 minutes) about VoiceThread from Michelle Pacansky-Brock -"VoiceThread provides a unique environment where students engage with course content and their peers in a way that is more rewarding and effective than traditional text-based learning systems. The affordance of multi-sensory interaction has become a critical component of 21st century teaching and learning. In this webinar Michelle Pacansky-Brock, an award winning community college educator, will engage you in a thoughtful discussion about why VoiceThread is crucial to 21st century educators and students. Topics will include designing VoiceThreads with a priority on accessibility, supporting the needs of students who rely on screen readers and empowering students with cognitive disorders. We’ll also explore strategies for accommodating deaf students and offer a glimpse into new dimensions of learning made possible through the VoiceThread mobile app."  Supporting All Learners with VoiceThread
