“Our country is that spot to which our heart is bound.”
Voltaire, French writer, historian and philosopher
This time we are going to use VoiceThread, a Web-based digital-storytelling application, in order to present the most beautiful places in our countries. VoiceThread is a great classroom tool because it allows group conversations to be collected and shared in one place, from anywhere in the world. As the students must be at least 13 years or older to register and use this service, the teachers should create their own accounts (choose the free basic one for educators) and then add new identities for their pupils (please watch the video tutorials on how to do that). When the pupils’ identities are ready, they will be able to make comments on the photos/videos in two ways: voice with a microphone or text. Please, don’t use a telephone as it is very expensive!!!
