The single greatest advantage of using the ed.Voicethread network is that it allows students to work autonomously, in school and out; learning to create their own voice
thread, maintaining their own portfolio of content, creating their own identities, adding a friend to a contact list, and sending out invitations to comment all within a simple and safe environment.
- Note, this doesnt mean that the student cannot add friends and meet new people.It just means that anyone that they might meet is a known person to a verified educator within the community.
34. While the educator on Ed.VoiceThead are allowed to send invitations to individuals outside of the network like parents and other educators, students cannot. 35. Students can only add or invite others that are already within the system, where all users are known users and held accountable for their content and commentary.
