Interesting Ways to use Voicethread, Wordle and the Nintendo DS

It has been great to see the range of classroom ideas in the “Interesting Ways” series really expand and develop over time. It is always great to connect with a fellow educator and invite them to edit the various presentations.

The most recent presentations have included Voicethread and Wordle which are really great little tools and their flexibility is reflected in the wide range of ideas that people have offered.

We are about to kick off a Nintendo DS project at school, which you will hear more about here soon, and so I have been thrilled to see a bunch of ideas outlined by people with direct classroom experience of using the consoles. It will prove a useful set of current thinking for our teachers and I hope we’ll be able to contribute too.

I hope that you are finding the presentations useful. As always if you have an idea that you would like to contribute then just get in touch. Thanks for all of the support and contributions so far. (By the way the very first presentation on the IWB has just hit 40 different ideas!)

Thanks for alerting me to these slide presentations. They are great. I love especially Wordle and am always interested to see how others have used it.

We’re not allowed to use Voicethread here in Norfolk.
It’s a social networking/collaborative tool and therefore it’s off limits.
How many of you are able to use it? Why is there this difference between counties?
