Using VoiceThread.- My year in twelve pictures

Sorry about the repetition but since I've got some time off I've been trying out various web tools connected with blogging. I think that VoiceThread is an interesting alternative to the traditional essay format. It allows EFL/ESL students to practice speaking skills.

Thanks Theodora, I thought I'd see how the program works using my own stuff.

Happy Xmas!!!

wow, thank you for the great story behind the images. By themselves, the photos are excellent and I'd be happy to see them in a gallery or online anywhere, but your voice and the stories that accompany them lend a complexity and context that is simply not available without your voice. And I'll go out on a limb and make a suggestion after hearing your voice and seeing your photos, I think you might like this Thread,
Thanks again,

And thank you Steve for this application. I really think that has a great future, especially for educators who want to combine web 2.0 applications with more traditional academic skills such as essay writing.

You might want to check out the Magnum photo agency site for ideas on how this kind of format can be used.
