Teachers Teaching Teachers #141 - VoiceThread Update with Ben and Steve along with Bill, Mattie, Mary Ellen & Colette - 02.25.09

67:10 minutes (21.02 MB)

Do you use VoiceThread? Many of us do, and as we grow with this application in our classrooms, it’s great to know that the founders are still there with us, listening and improving their tool.

Perhaps you also received an email from the VoiceThread team earlier this month. Upon their release of “a major update to our Groups feature and want to share how it works and what it means for everyday VoiceThreaders.” They go on to explain that the improvements mean that groups are “persistent,” “borderless,” and “simple.” And they did profide “a Thread showing what’s new and how to use it.”

Fair enough, but this made Susan Ettenheim and Paul Allison feel the need for more conversation! We asked Steve Muth and Ben Papell to join us on Teachers Teaching Teachers February 25.

We also invited four teachers whose art as educators includes using VoiceThread. Bill Ferriter, Mattie Ettenheim, Mary Ellen Rudolph, Colette Cassinelli and others!

Enjoy the podcast.
