Most cognitive scientists agree that storytelling is a great way to help your message stick in the minds of an audience. Our minds are fine-tuned to remember information shared within a narrative structure, not a broadcast lecture. In this workshop, participants will learn how to use VoiceThread to create engaging stories with their students.

VoiceThread Basics 4- VoiceThread and your LMS

Register here

In this workshop, we will work on integrating VoiceThread into an LMS environment. With LMS integration educators can create and share VoiceThreads and grade student work. Participants will learn how to use the assignment builder feature to assess student work during a hands-on segment. Everyone who registers will receive the recording of the session the following day. (Note: LMS integration is an add-on product, so participants whose institutions don’t have integration are welcome to join us but won’t be able to complete the hands-on activities.
