VoiceThread provides a great way for students to provide “clickable” links to the websites where they originally found images used in their interactive digital stories. When editing an image in VoiceThread, click below the image in the thumbnail in the left column of the screen to add a title and link:
Then add the desired title and link. You’ll want to copy the link first from a web browser. It’s a best-practice for students to copy down the web addresses / URLs of websites where they find images they are using in projects AS they find them during the research process.
The final VoiceThread will show the image title and link when a visitor mouses over the lower right corner of thumbnail images in the VoiceThread.
Here is an example of a VoiceThread created by 4th grade Sarah in February 2009, about “The Lightning Thief” by Rick Riordan. Attribution links are included for the images used in this project.
