TeachMeet Takeover Presentation – Digital Storytelling Links

For those who attended my talk on Digital storytelling as part of TeachMeet Takeover, here’s a collection of the links and resources I demonstrated:

Digital Storytelling covers many different types of activity – from making movies, recording voices, creating animations or electronic books. In schools they can help to take a task that might be seen as mundane – write a report, write a story, explain a process, describe an experiment – and turn it into something a whole lot more interesting.

The links to the sites/software demonstrated are :


Storybird – http://www.storybird.com
Storybirds are short, art-inspired stories that are curiously fun to make, share, and read. Choose from hundreds of fabulous drawings and images and then write a story to go with them. Free to sign up and class accounts possible. Finished story books can be embedded into blogs/VLE or read via the website – a great way to share with parents. A really cute site, do take a look!


Storyjumper – http://www.storyjumper.com
StoryJumper teaches children to write a story in just 7 steps using their StoryStarter process. Finished books can be read on-screen or bought as a hardback. Free signup, class setup available.


ToonDoo : http://www.toondo.com
Toondo is another simple comic strip creation tool with a wealth of different options available. Sign up needed, but it’s free.

ZooBurst is a digital storytelling tool that lets anyone easily create his or her own 3D pop-up books using augmented reality technology.
