Through spending much time thinking about what the point of Voice Thread is, I have come to the conclusion that it is actually a fantastic collaborative learning tool! I was quite unsure about what to put up there so I uploaded a random photo with quite bad balance. In doing this I hope to generate a conversation around the technical components, as such, of the photo.
Voice Thread could also be used in the classroom not only to generate collaborative learning about a certain topic, but also to enhance learner’s skills around computer technology through, for example, using a telephone to make a comment on Voice Thread.
This type of learning would conform to the constructivist learning theory through learners interpreting the picture(s) based on their own prior experiences, mental structures and beliefs (Steinmetz & Nahrstedt, n.d.).
