The power of Voicethreads

Yet another collaborative ICT activity in at our school this week. It involved year seven students and a group of clients from  Lyndoch Aged Care on a day outing. The students prepared their ‘voicethread’ programs and compiled lists of questions and prompts in a 50 minute session prior to the visitors arriving.  In preparation for the whole group activity that started the session we set up an online ‘tokbox’ to make a live video recording. After that was complete the students then moved off in small groups with their special visitors to interview them and make ‘voicethread’ recordings. The second part of this activity, the actual making of the voicethreads that included the interview recording and uploading photos only took a very busy 50 minute session. Well done to the students and the teachers involved. View the completed voicethreads at http://techno7.globalstudent.org.au/lyndoch-day-trippers
