¡Hola a todos!
Below, you will find our first Voicethread Project. It is based on Actividad 17, in your Workbook (either in your textbook or online, at www.books.quia.com) . Once you have completed this Voicethread activity, you will have shown how well you have achieved your BATs (Be Able To’s) for chapter 1. The first slide shows you what the activity looks like; the second slide is a video of me (Profe) providing you an example of what you should be able to say in your own voicethread.
First, you will write out all the sentences you will learn and practice speaking. Second, you will email them to me or hand them in so I can correct them for you. You will learn the corrected version of your sentences.
You will have as many chances as you wish to record your Voicethread audio/video. You will see next to your name, once you have logged in, a little trash can icon. If you are not satisfied with your recording, you can “throw your recording in the trash” and start again!
If you do not yet have a webcam or a microphone on your own computer, use the computers in FRED. All have microphones installed.
To view this Voicethread to see what this first assignment is, click on the “Play” arrow in the middle of the screen, below. (Note: to actually record and submit your own work, scroll down to the voicethread links at which you will set up your voicethread account and then join either SPA 101.01 or SPA 101.02):
Note: To view the Voicethreads on the full screen of your computer, look in the upper right hand side of the Voicethread. You will see an “X” icon. To the left of it, there is a control button that will expand your screen. To return to the normal view of your Voicethread, press the “ESC” key on your computer (on the top left of your keyboard).
Note, too, that on some computers, voicethread videos do not play (the screen goes grey) on Mozilla Firefox. Should this happen, try to view the voicethread with Internet Explorer. I have had no trouble with videos on my Mac using Safari. Please post to this page any problems you are having with any of this technology. Sign your name, please!
