June and July VoiceThread Workshops

Humanize Your Online Course with VoiceThread​
June 13 at 2:00pm ETRegister here
Creating engaging online courses is not easy. In many courses based on discussion boards, students feel isolated and disconnected from their instructors and classmates. VoiceThread bridges the gaps in social presence typically found in online courses. In this workshop, educators will learn how to establish that social presence and connect with their students using VoiceThread to improve student satisfaction and learning.

VoiceThread Basics 1 – Upload, Comment, and Share​

VoiceThread and STEM Classes​
June 27 at 2:00pm ETRegister here
Jobs in STEM-related fields are increasing in importance, and today’s students need a deeper understanding of STEM subjects to perform in a global economy. In this interactive session, participants will have an opportunity to exchange ideas about STEM lesson design with VoiceThread and connect and share with other educators. The focus will be on student-centered lesson design and demonstration of understanding.

VoiceThread and Storytelling
July 11 at 2:00pm ETRegister here
Most cognitive scientists agree that storytelling is a great way to help your message stick in the minds of an audience. Our minds are fine-tuned to remember information shared within a narrative structure, not a broadcast lecture. In this workshop, participants will learn how to use VoiceThread to create engaging stories with their students.
