EDCT203: Week 7

This was a fun class. We learned how to use a program called Voice Thread which allows you to comment on media created by other people. I clike that you can provide different types of comments such as video, audio and text. I also like how you can doodle on the slides to show exactly what you're talking about. I think that kids would really like the doodling part.

There are many ways that you could use this in a classroom. You could put some of your lessons on Voice Thread so that other teachers can give you feedback. You could also use it as a way to encourage the students to work collaboratevly with a group. You can also use it as a way to communicate with parents- if they have a Voice Thread account they can contact you via it.

On a side note, this is probably the most fun class we've had so far. My crazy friends make everything so much fun. Sure, we might have procrastinated a little a lot, but man did we laugh.We got it done in the end, though, so its cool!
