As part of our inquiry into personal learning journeys, the children have been thinking about what they would like to learn in Kindergarten. They recorded their ideas by drawing pictures. Today we introduced the children to a new tool called VoiceThread. We began by looking at a VoiceThread made by the last KC class. Then I showed the children how I had added photographs of their self portraits to use as their identities. We talked about on-line safety and protecting one’s identity.
The children have had opportunities to read and leave comments through twitter and our class blog. Today each child dictated a comment on someone else’s work. Over the next weeks the children will learn how to leave voice comments, which will empower them to leave comments independently, without the need for a scribe.
VoiceThread is a wonderful tool for sharing thoughts and ideas beyond the classroom. Please leave you own voice comments on the children’s pictures. The children love seeing comments from their wider learning community.
