VoiceThread in Action with Schools:
Here is an example of how one school (MN Online High School) utilizes VoiceThread for it's student accounts. The school subscribes to VoiceThread so that each student can generate their own VoiceThreads as well as engage with teacher generated VoiceThreads. Each student generates one VoiceThread Portfolio for submission of their media arts work. This allows responses from both the teacher and the larger group of students for formative and summative evaluation purposes. The above PDF document outlines the step-by-step process used by the course.

This VoiceThread is an example "respond process" assignment for the MNOHS Media Arts course. It allows for the students to identify and describe the artistic use of negative space within the overall composition of these photographs.
