A great little free tool that allows the user to copy and paste text and then creates flash-based activites to manipulate the text. A good way to use an IWB or to change the dynamic of a reading task- ordering, gap filling, text construction etc.
This post is about using Voicethread as a tool for students to practice their speaking skills and build speaking confidence. This technology is now available as an App. It is a useful tool for rehearsal. EAP students can rehearse their presentations and IELTS students their Part 2 speaking. They can play back, anaylse their performance and rerecord. The teacher and other members of the group can comment. You can use video and images. Many teachers have trialled Voicethread and feedback is students like it and are motivated to use it ;-)
SC teachers, if you are interested, let's explore together and we can trial in our classes.
