VoiceThread has some exciting news about a new feature.
“Over 700,000 historical images from The New York Public Library’s Digital Gallery are now freely and instantly available whenever you’re creating a VoiceThread. The new Media Browser allows you to search or browse these primary source materials – maps, photos, drawings, paintings, posters and more, and then import them directly into any VoiceThread. Links back to the original location of the images on the web are automatically inserted to make citing and attribution easier for you and your students.” You can find this new feature here.
For those of you not familiar with VoiceThread, it is a fabulous tool that enables collaboration through voice, video, and/or text on any topic you might desire. Using images from Discovery Streaming, the Internet, student created, and now The New York Public Library, you can create some amazing learning activities for your classroom.
