Have you heard of Voicethread? I learned about it at the High Ability conference. I love technology, but this one was new to me. It’s stored in the cloud, easy to use, allows presentations to have narration and teacher interaction. The assignments are collected right in the program. Kids can hear and see teacher comments and markings. These comments and markings are visible to parents, too. You don’t have to save things in folders, it is all searchable. Research shows that memory retention increases to 65% when voice and visual is combined.

There are free teacher accounts if you want to explore…

I will post more information when the speaker handouts are posted!
