What is a VoiceThread?

Voice thread is a collaborative multimedia slideshow that holds images, documents, and videos. It allows for people to comment in five different ways using voice (mic or phone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam).



What is the K-12 Educator within VoiceThread?

K-12 Educator is a network for students and educators in grades K-12. The educator has one account and adds his/her students. All content on the educator's account can only be accessed by the educator and his/her students. All information is private; only the educator can control the comments/content of the VoiceThread and make it public. Within K-12 Educator the students can collaborate with each other and the educator can collaborate with his/her students. 




 Create your VoiceThread with these 3 easy steps:


1. Create: Add your images, documents, or videos to your VoiceThread by either accessing the items from My Computer, URL, and/or Media Sources.


2. Comment: You can comment your images by using webcam, audio (phone or mic), text, and doodle.
