If you are new to VoiceThread or just want some new ideas, join us for these interactive and hands-on explorations.
About the Workshops

VoiceThread and Storytelling
Most cognitive scientists agree that storytelling is a great way to help your message stick in the minds of an audience. Our minds are fine-tuned to remember information shared within a narrative structure, not a broadcast lecture. In this workshop, participants will learn how to use VoiceThread to create engaging stories with their students.
