It's Story Time!

So much emphasis is placed on digital storytelling. This past week, I came across some really neat tools for telling a story, not necessarily a digital one.

1. Magcloud - You can create and publish your own magazine. This would be a great project for a class. You can publish a magazine "All About Your Class". Or, for larger projects, like a unit over Romeo and Juliet, you could publish a magazine at the end of the lesson.

2. Tikatok- You can create your own book and then order it. This would be a neat gift to give your students as they graduate your class. If I taught seniors or even 8th graders, this would be an awesome graduation gift.

3. Zoo Burst - Ok, here is a digital storytelling site that was just too cool not to share. You can create your own 3D Pop-Up book. What a neat way to review for a test, maybe finals, TAKS, or even a vocabulary quiz.

4. Blogs and Vokis - This site is one @cindybrock shared. It is a 3RD GRADE CLASS using blogs and vokis for biographical assignments. How neat would it be to use a voki to tell a story or write your story on a blog.

Have a great week!
