Sample WL VoiceThreads

Most of the VoiceThreads I am including on this page are in Spanish or French.  Others are in English, included simply because I feel that they are good examples of the types of activities you can do with voicethreads in any language.

You can also find your own, by going to VoiceThread, clicking browse and typing the targeted language into the search.

Oh, and I added a final category (More Resources), since I didn't know until fairly recently that some of you (not in WL) were coming today.  Welcome!
