VoiceThread Assignment Tips

Threads

In posting your thread, consider the following tips from Bill Ferrell. (Note that these excerpts refer to threads as strands.)

To be an active VoiceThreader, start by carefully working your way through a presentation. While viewing pictures and listening to the comments that have been added by other users, you should:

  1. Gather Facts: Jot down things that are interesting and new to you.
  1. Make Connections: Relate and compare things you are viewing and hearing to things that you already know.
  1. Ask Questions: What about the comments and presentation is confusing to you? What don’t you understand?  How will you find the answer? Remember that there will ALWAYS be questions in an active thinker’s mind.
  1. Give Opinions: Make judgments about what you are viewing and hearing. Do you agree? Do you disagree? Like? Dislike? Do you support or oppose anything that you have heard or seen? Why?

Use the following sentence starters to shape your thoughts and comments while viewing or participating in VoiceThread presentations. Comments based on these kinds of statements make VoiceThreads interactive and engaging.

  • I’d like to know…
  • I’m surprised that…
  • If I were ________, I would ______________

While commenting, try to respond directly to other viewers. Begin by quoting some part of the comment that you are responding to to help other listeners know what it is that has caught your attention. Then, explain your own thinking in a few short sentences. Elaboration is important when you are trying to make a point. Finally, finish your comment with a question that other listeners can reply to. Questions help to keep digital conversations going.
