Scholastic Story Starters é uma ferramenta de ensino flexível, que pode ser usada em vários contextos (na biblioteca escolar, em sala de aula, nos laboratórios de informática uma vez que também está disponível para iPad …) e se adapta ao estilo de ensino de cada um.
É uma atividade ideal para trabalhar com os alunos dado que desenvolve competências associadas à escrita.

Baiba Svenca's insight:

Storyboard That came into existence about half a year ago, it's been upgraded and improved so that now it makes a great online tool for collaborative storytelling. Students can express their creativity by making their stories in a team which then can be downloaded as PowerPoint presentations.


A single user can make 3 storyboards a week for free. If a teacher wants to create a private classroom portal, it will cost $24.95 per year. There is a free trial option. Check out Storyboard That for educators http://www.storyboardthat.com/education
