For their Explorers and Inventors Unit of Inquiry, students from Grade 5 created Tagxedo Word Clouds using the text from their own biographies that they wrote. We then uploaded a selection of the best Word Clouds and got other Grade 5 students to guess who it was and how they knew - what clues did they see within the text that gave it away.Blooms Digital Taxonomy
Voicethread is right at the top of the Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Pyramid in the 'creating' section and could be useful when analysing and/or synthesising information especially in the way that I have used it below...
Voicethread provides a perfect way to collate student comments - with the added advantage that the students could add their comment as video, audio, written and could also annotate. It is especially useful in a mixed ability classroom and with shy students who are less willing to share their thoughts in a large group. Voicethread is very successful use of a GREAT Web2.0 Tool to create & present, showcase students work, and gather feedback to assess students knowledge & skills...! Love it :)
