If you’ve attended any of our Web 2.0 workshops, then you’ve probably heard us talk about the many reasons why we believe VoiceThread is an awesome PreK-Adult, cross-curricular tool.
If you’re new to VoiceThread and are wondering how your school site might benefit from having a VoiceThread School Account, we recommend taking a quick tour. Start with an in-district project from a group of Prairie Elementary School 4th graders. With over 20,000 visitor’s to their Letters from the Internment Camps VoiceThread, these students have invited a worldwide audience to reflect on and document an event that overnight changed the history and demographics of the Elk Grove-Florin community.
So here’s the good news: The wonderful developers of VoiceThread have offered to provide all EGUSD schools with a free trial account for the remainder of the school year. But wait…there’s more! One site will win a year-long school account for the 2011-12 school year!
Here’s how to bring your site into the contest:
The 2011-12 VoiceThread School Account will be awarded to the site that makes the best use of this year’s trial offer. The contest ends on June 15, 2011. We’ll announce the winning site on June 30.
Want to learn more about VoiceThread before entering the contest? Join our next class on Monday, March 14th, 2011 or Tuesday, March 22, 2011 from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the EGUSD Technology Services Annex.
