Our first VoiceThread

Today we used VoiceThread for the first time to create a few pages of recorded comments about our thoughts on using Myst in our Literacy lessons. The children responded very well and enjoyed the whole process although, naturally, some shied away from being recorded by webcam but offered an audio recording instead. But what I found about using VoiceThread was that it gave my pupils the opportunity to listen to their own voices, watch themselves on the IWB and then decide whether they thought their spoken response was good enough or needed to be corrected. Most of them took two or three attempts to record their responses as they were not entirely happy with their first tries. As second language learners this is a great way for children to practice a new language and have fun at the same time. Watch it here.
