I have been experimenting with voice thread this week - it was pretty simple to set up but I have been having hiccups with getting it to actually record the children's voices.
We made a define map about Sea Cucumbers (because that is the inquiry we were working on this week). I am not sure whether a define map was actually the correct type of map to use but we wrote down all the things we knew about sea cucumbers and then moved the things that weren't facts into the not relevant section.
The children then went away and wrote their definitions. I was really impressed with how focused they were and I think most children came out with something multistructural. Anyway, only a few children have been able to record at present but I thought I would share anyway - we will continue adding to this next week if we can get it to record.
Also I can't figure out how to make the embedded voice thread any smaller to fit on the blog.. David? This is the link if you want to watch it properly.
Also if you are interested in voice threads you can check out this link that tells you what it is.
