Herramientas online: VoiceThread


Cada día descubrimos más herramientas útiles disponibles online. Hoy os recomendamos VoiceThread con la que podemos crear presentaciones online usando nuestras propias imágenes y añadir audio o textos escritos a estas imágenes. Sin embargo, lo más interesante es que otros usuarios pueden añadir comentarios escritos o en audio a nuestra presentación creando así un diálogo con una audiencia online. Creemos que es una herramienta tremendamente útil para docentes.

Para saber cómo usarlo aquí os dejamos un tutorial de VoiceThread. A continuación os citamos posibles usos para la clase de EFL que hemos encontrado aquí.
  • Ask them to upload some images of things with personal significance and create a kind of online show and tell.
  • Get students to create and tell a story using pictures. If they have access to digital cameras, you could get the students to work in pairs or small groups to produce a story together.
  • Upload two images and ask students to record what they think is the connection between the two images
  • Upload images for students to describe, such as rooms or people etc.
  • Upload images of people speaking and ask students to add a dialogue. They could also add text bubbles of what they think the people are thinking
  • Ask students to research a member of their family then upload an image of the person and tell about them.
  • Get students to upload pictures from around their town and create a sort of interactive tourist guide
  • Upload some images of graphs and statistics and see if students can describe them appropriately
  • Upload some images with incorrect descriptions and see if they can spot and correct the errors
