My friends at VoiceThread just shared some exciting plans to celebrate World Read Aloud Day with all of us.
They had the brilliant idea of connecting students and celebrating literacy with others around the world using VoiceThread.
VoiceThread is a powerful cloud based tool that lets users upload, share, and discuss documents, presentations, images, audio files and videos.
Then once these items are uploaded, the VoiceThread can be shared for others to comment on VoiceThread slides using one of five powerful tools including microphone, webcam, text, phone, and audio-file upload.
They posted this on the VoiceThread blog last week, Connecting Students for World Read Aloud Day. I hope you read their ideas and give VoiceThread a try with your students and school community when celebrating World Read Aloud Day.
It is just one more way that we can make a difference by coming together to celebrate with LitWorld's and others around the world.
