    Voicethread
    I dedicated this special page to talk about how we can use Voicethread in our class. This tool was especially recommended by Lee Kolbert on her A GeekyMomma's Blog. Please check out her site to see how she uses technology.
    Some ideas I want to explore:
    Post grade 1 class photo and have all the students talk about how they have changed
    Post completed assignment and students can explain their thinking and processes - other students can comment and share their ideas
    Voicethread is also a great tool for English Language Learners to motivate them to use their new language in a visual form
    Using Voicethread as another communication tool for parents to participate in our classroom learning
    If you have any other suggestions, please email me. I always welcome input.

    using Skype to video chat with authors, business leaders
    WebQuests
    microblogging (just like Twitter, but safer)
