Here are some additional resources for you to explore from teachers/educators who are using VoiceThread in their classrooms.

Teachers are just beginning to explore the power of VoiceThread with their students and colleagues so many of the current VoiceThreads have experimental comments. However, each one gives you an opportunity to see the creative uses being explored to enhance education and engage all students. "Borrow" their ideas and create your OWN VoiceThreads. :-)

VoiceThread wiki! (new wiki and content is just beginning to be added)
http://voicethread.pbwiki.com/
Why did I create this?
In my opinion VoiceThread is one of the greatest Web 2.0 tools out there. There are infinite ways to use this tool, and as brilliant as we all are (ha ha ha), we can't think of all of them ourselves. Please share samples of how you have used VoiceThread personally, professionally, or with students.
