The Kneighborhood of Knowledge

"Hey…Neighborhood is spelled wrong!"

VoiceThread Projects.

The long awaited VoiceThread projects are finally graded and posted for your viewing pleasure here. There were some very great ones and some that needed a little work. If I had to do it all over again, I would change some things.

Things I would change:

I would change the rubric for the project. I graded the kids on their pictures, the sentences they created for the pictures, their voice quality, creativity, and their use of class time. Next time I would add a category – Picture Relatedness. Some of the students turned their Revolution VoiceThread into a research project about their favorite topics and forgot completely that they had to show a change over time.

I would make sure students work with a partner – 4th block especially. When students worked together, they brainstormed about their revolution giving them two perspectives instead of one.

OK….so here are the links for the VoiceThreads. The kids had them set to private, so I hope these links still work. If they don’t, then I’ll have to set the VoiceThreads to public.

    must have three years experience, but well worth it in my experience. You can use some material for entry 4 as old as 5 years of age. Your blog would be a good one to use. You must begin cultivating yourself as a teacher/leader. Give a workshop or two-like on using VT and creating a class blog. (id help–be ur back-up.) Just remeber the emphasis MUST be about kids and their learning.

    Interesting – I’m glad I was able to view a couple of these after having read your description of the project.

    Thanks for including your reflection on what you would change. Such reflection is a valuable part of the teaching process (National Board Certification -are you certifie?.
