Participants will learn how VoiceThread can help educators provide multiple means of engagement, representation, action, and expression for their courses. We will use VoiceThread’s multi-modal communication platform, closed captioning feature, and VoiceThread Universal to design accessible lessons.
Most cognitive scientists agree that storytelling is a great way to help your message stick in the minds of an audience. Our brains 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.
