Free Custom Feedback Icons

Also, one of the most demanded custom feature requests I receive is for "feedback icons" for use in VoiceThread.  In chapter 4, I explain how I use VoiceThread's Identities feature to toggle between avatars and leave "Feedback" for students on a single VoiceThread page. Doing so allows me have multiple visual markers of my presence, which is usually not a possibility in VoiceThread when multiple comments are left on a single slide using the same identity (the avatar only appears one time and students typically are not aware that feedback has been left for them).

I have produced a beautiful set of 12 custom feedback icons that I am giving away free to all current members of the Teaching with VoiceThread Google+ Community, in addition to any new members who join between now and the end of February 2014! Of course, I am hopeful that this will stimulate some conversation and sharing in our community about all the great things you have been doing with VoiceThread. :) Share your stuff. It will inspire others!
