Teaching Languages with VoiceThread– FULL

In this interactive session, participants will exchange ideas about creating learning experiences with VoiceThread around improved reading and writing skills in any language. Whether students are learning English or any other language, vocabulary and grammar are fundamental elements of any course. After completing this training, educators will be better equipped to design innovative lessons to develop these fundamentals with their students.

Flipping Your Class with VoiceThread- FULL

The flipped classroom is usually described as “lecture at home, homework in class.” While this may be true for teachers who use one-way, broadcast video tools to record lengthy lectures, it doesn’t need to be the case. Lesson design doesn’t need to include passive learning either at home or in school. In this workshop, educators will learn how to use VoiceThread to design engaging, student-centered, “flipped” content that encourages students to think.

  1. Will you be archiving or elsewhere publishing the VoiceThread workshops? I am in another class for most of those dates. Thanks.

  2. I would like to add my name to the mailing list for the Basics #3 session. The listing indicates that one can still enroll, but when I do that I get a new message saying the session is full, but there’s no waiting list link to receive the recordings the day after the session. Thanks for your help!

    1. Hi, Susan!
      Sorry about that, it just filled up. I added the link to the mailing list so you should be all set now.

      Thanks!
