    I haven’t tried using VoiceThread with my students yet but the projects you carried out with your students have encouraged me to do so.
    My classroom is low-tech, we only have one computer connected to a TV set for everybody to see. I’ve created classroom blogs for my students to continue working at home.
    Regards,

        thanks for the inspiration and idea , I’ll try to apply it with my students. Due to my situation and the situation in public schools around Peru are similar to yours ,even some of them d0n’t have electricity. Imagine that!

  3. Congratulations on starting up this new series!

    I hope it’s going to be as successful as the previous ones 🙂

  4. Hi Barbara

    This is another fabulous series. Thank you so much for starting it. I really enjoyed reading about your work with Voicethread. I love the one about Rocco and the alphabet project is a brilliant idea. I haven’t used Voicethread with students yet, but I would like to.

  5. I am enjoying your blog! My husband Masaaki and I will be moving to his home town next summer…Kyushu-Fukuoka prefecture….I am also planning on joining AFWJ at that time…I am following your blog! Very informative!

      Wonderful, Connie. We have a great AFWJ group here in Kyushu, and there’s always room for more!

      I’m glad you are enjoying the blog. Please stay in touch 🙂

    How does this digital book improve on what I could do otherwise?

    How great to see this question asked and answered in a post about technology and teaching. Because I live in Kazakhstan where schools often don’t have Internet, might not have a whiteboard, let along a computer, it’s often quite a bit of work to use technology in the classroom. And I’ve found that low-tech solutions often work just as well, although the kids may not think so! So it’s great to see someone justifying why I should use this tool.

    I will definitely try this with my next class of young learners.

    […] Shelly:  Again, that is on how we choose to use the technology. The teacher makes the choices. For example, we can decide if the children we teach will play a game for 30 minutes to learn particular the alphabet or we can choose if they will use something like VoiceThread to crowdsource the alphabet. Barbara Sakamoto has a perfect example of this. […]
