Our Stories

Welcome to Our Stories

The Our Stories™ project helps people share the stories of their lives, no matter where they live or how their stories unfold. We're providing resources to create and share personal stories from all over the world, starting with children in developing countries who are using One Laptop per Child (OLPC) computers or those who are working with UNICEF radio producers to record and share interviews. Children are asked to record the stories of elders, family members, and friends. You can listen to our growing collection of global voices on this site, which includes stories from Brazil's Museum of the Person and stories from Ghana, Uganda, Tanzania, and Pakistan (through UNICEF). Soon, stories from other countries will also be available for listening here. And in the future, we'll make it possible for people of all ages around the world to add their content to the Our Stories site.

Feel free to explore our site, listen to stories, and learn about the world through the voices of others. You may even be inspired to capture the stories of your own friends and family. Everyone has a story to tell. What's yours?

Listen. Learn. Live.

Looking for an easy way to get your students interested in doing projects? VoiceThread is your answer!

What's a VoiceThread?

A VoiceThread is an online media album that allows people to make comments, either audio or text, and share them with anyone they wish. A VoiceThread allows an entire group's story to be told and collected in one place.

Check out this voicethread I made with a 6th grade language arts class. The students had made collages of their book reports. I took pictures of the collages and then the students recorded their book reviews.

First post

Hello all! Welcome to Integrating Middle School Technology.

This is my first post on my new blog. Jane Twigg at East Lee suggested I start a new blog on the Web 2.0 websites I find. So, I am taking her up on her idea.

On this blog I will add the websites I come across during my many hours of surfing. Hopefully, I can add at least one site a week.

My other educational technology blog, Random Ramblings, can be found:

Thanks for joining me! If you happen to find a site that you would like to share, please email it to me.

Until next time ~ Danita
