Digital storytelling is a simple and easy way for students to present creative ideas. These are a couple of digital storytelling apps and websites that I like the best.
ZooBurst is a digital storytelling tool that lets students easily create his or her own 3D pop-up books. Using ZooBurst, storytellers of any age can create their won rich worlds in which their stories can come to life. ZooBurst books online and can be experienced on your desktop or laptop computer, or on the iPad app. Students can arrange characters and props within a 3D world that can be customized using uploaded artwork or items found in a built-in database of over 10,000 free images and materials.
PicCollage is an app that lets students create collages of photos and text. Students can get creative with freeform collages, cutouts, filters, stickers and text. This app allows students to create a quick presentation about a certain subject area.
Storybird is a free site that allows teachers to create an account and invite students so that projects can be monitored. If you simply decide to allow students to create their own accounts, they can send you the link to their project. Students take ownership in selecting their illustrator’s artwork and developing their written work as an author. Books can also be printed.
PowToon is the Do-It-Yourself animated presentation tool that supercharges your presentations and videos! Save massive amounts of time and money by creating Powtoons that bring the WOW!-factor to product demos, business presentations, social media clips, and much more.
