VoiceThread (9:00 – 9:25)A VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and viewers to comment in 5 ways - using voice (with a mic or telephone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). VoiceThread is a popular web app for digital storytelling assignments and can be a creative way for students to document and share what they’ve learned. Digital Annotation on the iPad (9:30 – 9:50)Come check out what sleek new iPad apps are available for annotating documents on the go!

Social bookmarking services enable you to keep a personal or collaborative library of web links.
