Synchronous and Asynchronous Communication Tools

The synchronous tool I choose to set up was Skype.  I used Skype for the very first time today.  I actually communicated with my Grandmother who lives in Frederick, Maryland.  I was amazed at how easy utilizing Skype was.  Now I am very excited about using Skype for personal and professional means!!  My Skype name is lorienwatson5. The asynchronous tool I set up today was voicethread.  I researched this tool, and found it to be very useful for the classroom.  I commented on a segment about bullying, the link is:  https://voicethread.com/share/1814765/  Voicethread is a creative way to share thoughts about different types of media displayed.

Information once difficult to find, maintain, and disseminate is now found by a voice command to a mobile device.
