Lots of great ideas of how to use VoiceThread, but I think it should be updated since the posterous link is no longer active.

There is a lot of information here for educators who are beginning to use an iPad. I definitely suggest watching it, however, I would have liked to have seen more on beginning basics with an iPad as a techno leftover from the late80's and early 90's. In this regard I found the final webinar most helpful.
