  11. Don’t Byte the Ram That Feeds Ya’

  12. One Collaborative Idea Sort of a “visual blogging” site

  13. What do you do with Voicethread? • Post documents (Word, PDF), videos, PowerPoints, images, etc • Student create/comment on own piece of project then comment on another group’s piece of a project • Cross curricular collaboration • Interstate collaboration • World wide collaboration!

  14. 1. Have students sign a Voicethread Do and Don’t worksheet 2. Have students register with VoiceThread. They will need an email account (Gaggle for in-school use) 3. They will create an avatar (icon) just like they do in Facebook. 4. You can assign coded numbers to identify students. 5. Create a sandbox/play Voicethread so they can get use to the techniques involved. http://voicethread.com/share/661520/

  18. Cover It Live!

  19. Video presentation is not available on this PowerPoint • To make a Cover It Live Event for your classroom: • Register • Create new (verify time and date) • A generated HTML code is produced - copy and paste in a blog or wiki that is open to the public (not protected) • Take the time to create messages, polls, url links, etc. in the Show Prep Folder (numbering in a planned order use is helpful) • Launch your event. Send Welcome message. • Once students enter comments you will have to “allow” or you may send back private messages in order for it to be posted to the blog/wiki for students to see • Double click on any show prep items for instant posting from your moderator seat. • Great for use in Paideia or Socratic seminars or for high level students to summarize the lessons.
