Brainstorming-Sharing Ideas for Using Voicethread in the Classroom

Page history last edited by Tracy Poelzer 7 years, 10 months ago

Please add/share more ideas as you think of them.  Add links to any Voicethreads you create that you would be willing to share!


  • Book talks that can be shared in the library or classrooms (or on a school/library website)
  • Our school year in 12 pictures (one for each month)
  • Research on countries - compare to our own country
  • Partner project with another school - create Voicethreads about your school and/or community to share with your partner class. Find a partner class by registering your class here.
  • Hero project - create a voicethread about your hero
  • Math casts, Science labs, project reflections
  • Digital Storytelling - creative writing
  • Digital portfolios - work samples over the course of a term or school year
  • Using "Inferring" books to collaborate on a project (storywriting)
  • Battle of the Books projects
  • Graduation - reflections on where you're from (First Nations Bands, etc.)
  • Assessment - authentic data, showing growth over time
  • Differentiated instruction
  • An ABC e-book on a topic (each "page" in the Voicethread is a different letter of the alphabet)

And remember.... no matter what technology you are using, there will always be glitches, goof-ups, and frustration when things don't always work.  Keep in mind that we live in pretty amazing times when we can create work like this at the click of a button and share it across the world within minutes.  If you feel like throwing in the towel on a "bad Internet" day, watch this video for a good laugh and feel grateful when you think about how amazing having free access to tools like Voicethread actually is!!!
