Abstract

The purpose of this workshop is to help K-12 teachers to understand some useful techniques in using the Voicethread web 2.0 in and out of the classroom. It is also designed to give K-12 teachers good skills that will allow them to use the Voicethread confidently with their students. In addition, teachers will be able to practice, negotiate with others, and end up with good activities that enable them to have full understanding of this application and how it can be used as a powerful and motivating tool to help students in the learning process. Although the main focus of this workshop is on teaching English as a second language (ESL), all teachers can benefit from attending this workshop and then apply it to their specific classes.
