Voicethreads are great ways to allow for both oral and written communication. A voicethread allows you to upload or import images, documents or powerpoint presentations and then narrate them or leave comments. You can even mark up the page with an online pen tool while you are leaving a comment.

Students can create their own voicethreads about a topic, or teachers can create a voicethread and have all their students access and leave comments or reflections on it.

Below is an example voicethread and a "how-to" video for students to create an account and create a voicethread using the free accounts.
