I have been waiting for this type of app for some time. Create your own word clouds using your ipad. Not just for poetry it is a great way of teaching the key vocabulary of a topic.

11 Storyboarding Apps To Organize & Inspire Young Writers ~ TeachThought

11 Storyboarding Apps To Organize & Inspire Young Writers ~ TeachThought | Ipad Apps for teachers | Scoop.it

"For students who dread writing class, a blank page can look a lot like a ten-foot monolith; an imposing, empty slate towering over their homework list. Visual storytelling is one way to break students out of writer’s block, and storyboarding apps are a pre-packaged strategy you can use to bring images to the narrative. Whether your students are afraid of writing or you’re simply looking for a way to break up a brainstorming session, these 10 storyboarding apps for iOS and Android devices can help inspire–and organize–students of any age.

 

"The best part might be the flexibility of these apps. While they can be used for strict storyboarding in the creation of fiction, they can also be used for other tasks, including documenting project-based learning, sharing assignments, or capturing research notes."

StoryToolz: Story Idea Generator and More for Authors

StoryToolz: Story Idea Generator and More for Authors | Ipad Apps for teachers | Scoop.it

Via Beth Dichter, Jamie Forshey

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 15, 2013 10:13 PM

StoryToolz provides seven resources to help authors. 

* The Story Idea Generator "picks a random conflict from each of the Internet Public Library's list of 7 plots, 20 plots, and 36 plots."

* Random Conflicts combines "the Internet Public Library's list of 7 plots, 20 plots, and 36 plots" and "randomly presents 10."

* Word Count Meters allows you to keep track of and share your progress.

* Readability - This tool analyzes your text. It will tell you the reading level (based on a number of different indexes); sentence information, including the number of characters, words, paragraphs and more; word usage; and sentence beginnings (type of word). 

* Half Title Generator - Select from a list of beginnings and then for ends of a title and see what comes up!

* Example Word Count Meters - show actual word counts of existing projects as well as the goal

* Cliche Buster - Reviews your text and lets you know if it finds any cliches.

This tool would most likely work best with students in middle school, high school and college. Students might also use it as a tool to check their story before having a peer edit the story.

Corey Durward's curator insight, July 21, 2013 8:55 PM

StoryToolz is a nice ensemble of useful tools for writers. Writers who are struggling to come up with ideas for their prose will like the story starters - random idea generators for plots, conflicts and titles. StoryToolz also provides tools that will analyse your work, identify clichés in your writing, and evaluate its readability.
