I just wrapped up my second workshop at NCCE in Seattle, titled “Cell Phones for Learning.” Participants learned how to use Gabcast to record audio interviews “in the field” as well as Flickr upload by email to share digital photos. We took the photos (from Flickr) and web-posted mp3 files (from a new Gabcast channel we created) and pulled those media pieces into a short VoiceThread digital story.
This was great fun and I think a good learning experience for all workshop participants.
We also used cell phones as mobile recorders to add a new comment to the VoiceThread about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. which I started with students and teachers in Salina, Kansas, last month.
Liz Kolb posted yesterday about this functionality of VoiceThread on her blog, “From Toy To Tool: Cell Phones in Schools.”
