Technology: No class time for students to present projects? Students can use VoiceThread to create online presentations which other students can watch, type comments into, and peer-review from anywhere. Teachers can assess around their schedules and free-up valuable class time. Additionally, a new pilot of an AsULearn integrated version might bring other possibilities, such as creating more interactive discussion forums. During this presentation I’ll discuss ways in which I have implemented this tool in my courses, things I have learned, modifications resulting from those past mistakes, and ideas I have to promote student learning and engagement using VoiceThread in the future.
Evidence: A presentation component in a large class, especially if each presentation is 5-10 minutes long, requires teachers to commit several class periods to presentations alone. Instead, students can hear new perspectives at their convenience. Also, with a rubric for peer review students gain practice evaluating others, promoting metacognition.
Broader Impacts: In general, students feel less anxious presenting online instead of speaking in front of a group as they can re-record any part of their project multiple times. The variety of choices, such as voice-overs, videos and text, for creating and commenting, plus, the annotating capabilities, promote UDL practices.
