Voicethread is a online tool that allows users to create simple digital stories either alone or collaboratively. You can upload documents, pictures or videos and record audio or video commentary with your webcam. The beauty of Voicethread is that you can invite others to comment on your digital story. Students need to sign up for a free account to use Voicethread and you can make up to 3 Voicethreads. K to 12 educators can sign up for a pro account for $79/year and Higher Education Instructors can sign up for a pro account for $99/year, which allows unlimited Voicethreads, the ability to create student accounts and the use of administration tools. Voicethreads can be embedded into blogs and websites, so it is easy for you to share your students’ stories.
