The Digital Library is a database of articles about successful VoiceThread projects. Our hope is to create a resource that offers guidance and inspiration for people undertaking new projects. Please contribute a VoiceThread to help the Digital Library grow.
The Silk Road - from Constance Vidor
This VoiceThread provides a scaffolding for research and active engagement with an important topic of world history.
Digital storytelling - Abraham Lincoln's dog, Fido, from Clare Caddell
VoiceThread brought a little-known story about Lincoln to life, with images as well as voice. It was created in response to my second and third graders, who wanted to know more about Lincoln's dog, Fido.
History Podcast with secondary-ed students from Laurie Cohen
This project gives students an opportunity to be creative while demonstrating their content knowledge and technological skills. After developing the Lesson Plan and creating this sample, our US History teacher loved it for his class. He is using it in the 10th grade class.
5th Grade - Ellis Is. Narratives from Barbara De Santis
I wanted this project to enable the students to truly feel the immigrant experience. While primary documents are always in their textbook, there is seldom time to closely examine the images looking for clues to foster understanding.
3rd Grade - School Community from Trish Harrison
The objective was for students to learn to express values while looking at different communities. They practiced discussion; brainstorming; writing down ideas; using ideas in small-group talk as conversations.
11th Grade - Reconstruction from Molly Lynde
This is a great VoiceThread foremost because my students were actively engaged and finished with a clearer understanding of what the post Civil War era was really about... they no longer thought of a "universal freed slave" dancing in the street.
4th Grade - Letters from the Internment Camps
In this VoiceThread, students explore an historical event that is relevant to their physical community, the removal of Japanese-Americans to internment camps after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
