Listen to a lively conversation about how to use Shelfari-- or how to get a similar site built -- to create a social networking site for students to share their book logs, reviews, and recommendations with each other.
Susan Ettenheim and Paul Allison (and Lee Baber in the chat room) welcomed:
This July, Paul Allison and Julie Conason fascilated a 3-week Writing Project Institute for teachers where we used VoiceThread as the focus of one of our weeks together. In the middle of our work with teachers, we invited Steve Muth, co-founder of VoiceThread, and Colette Cassinelli, a technology teacher near Portland, Oregon who started a wiki that collects examples of VoiceThreads.
What will you find on Collette's VoiceThread4Education?
Samples submitted by teachers of VoiceThread projects made by their students
VoiceThreads used in professional development
Resources, including other websites that contain VoiceThread examples
Best Practices - tips and ideas of how to best implement VoiceThread in your curriculum
Subject area ideas
"This is your wiki," Colette writes: "Please feel free to add any ideas,
examples or resources to the site and provide appropriate link
attribution. If you are not sure how to embed your VoiceThread projects
in wikispaces - follow the directions below."
In addition: Paul and Julie invite you to take a look at the "Narrative Discussions" from our Institute, linked below. We would love your comments on these.
