Development of receptive and expressive language skills is an important foundational skill in early childhood education. Recently, early childhood education professionals have begun using Web-based technology to assist in developing these skills. One Web-based technology that holds potential to support children's learning is "VoiceThread" which has unique features that support Universal Design for Learning. This paper provides practical recommendations for use of "VoiceThread" in meaningful learning activities that can easily be implemented. A step-by-step guide is presented to create and use "VoiceThread."
