    Add voices


    It appears that the recording feature requires a long distance phone call, so maybe you want to reserve this for very special events, but you CAN record audio clips as part of the tribute. One possible work-around would be to embed a clip you record and host elsewhere on the web. Have students narrate about the events in the timeline. Or make the tribute a visual accompaniment to an audio podcast.

    Post a link to a tribbit as a writing prompt: a set of photos, a quote or two, or things you collect from current events, such as a week in review. Have students blog on your prompt. Then invite them to create tribbit prompts for others to write about.
