Abstract
This paper focuses on using VoiceThread in teaching Filipino as a second language at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. VoiceThread is a creative tech-based collaboration tool with video, audio, and text commenting. In this study, students utilized VoiceThread in their three oral presentations. The study’s primary purpose was to investigate how VoiceThread’s use enhances language proficiency and oral presentation skills of second language learners of Filipino. It also explored other valuable benefits of using VoiceThread in student engagement, motivation, and quality of learning experience in second language classrooms. Participants consisted of forty-five students of Beginning Filipino courses and one teacher of Filipino language. Data were collected from the video-recorded oral presentations on VoiceThread, participants’ responses to the assessment survey instruments, interviews, personal notes or journals, observation, and other sources. Audio-recorded interviews were transcribed, while numerical figures were calculated. Results were analyzed and interpreted intelligibly. This study’s findings present valuable insights into the use of technology in promoting collaborative, engaging, dynamic, and stimulating language learning and teaching.
