Little Bird Tales is an alternative to VoiceThread that allows you to record your voice over images.
VoiceThread has added a lot of restrictions to its free accounts since I last used it over the summer. Little Bird Tales has more features for free than VoiceThread. You can create student accounts and have them make their own Tales, too. Teacher features on the free account include free Lesson Plans for K-6. (There a premium ones, too, that you won’t be able to access with a free account.)
The free account offers 25 MB of storage space.
Premium accounts get 200 MB of storage space for your account and 100 MB for each student in your classes.
On Little Bird Tales, you can create a “tale,” which is a slideshow of images with an audio recording–much like VoiceThread. Students can either draw an image right in the program, upload images, or use an image from the clip art bank.
