Edgar is a storytelling toolkit to craft and share digital stories. It takes a minute to craft the story, and seconds to tell the whole world.

Best way to start with digital/visual storytelling. Easy and intuitive, with rewarding outcomes!!

Neat tool students can use to create photo journals, photo news stories etc. There is a wide variety of ways to add pictures including instagram, Dropbox, Evernote, Picassa, your computer, and many more. Easy to use. Add your own title and text for photos added. Sign up with email address, twitter or facebook. They also have a great free app for iPhone and iPad

Some great visuals... might indeed be useful for student assignments.

Mike Dilger's curator insight, October 16, 2013 7:59 AM

Could be a useful resource.  Japanese section would be useful for cultural program and other subjects such as Science could use the Science focus articles.  The "Everyone is a Reporter" aspect could be adapted for real world writing but it would need to be set up and explored for student suitability.

Animating Your Classroom - iPads in Education | 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

" Mobile devices with built-in cameras such as the iPad enable budding animators to use a variety of easy to use animation apps to capture and stitch together photos of characters and objects into seamless, fluent animated movies. Further, the process of designing, scripting and staging animations has tremendous educational potential. Animation can be a wonderful mix of art, science, collaboration and problem solving.

Animation is directly linked to storytelling and  narrative. Creativity in language learning.

Ricard Garcia's insight:

Animations are probably the catchiest way to foster storyelling, narrative and a better communicative competence as a whole. Here's a nice article on the creation of animations like those in the RSA site... probably the most engaging way to show ideas in a graphic animated environment.
