Google Slides for iOS | educational transformation | Scoop.it
Google Slides for iOS is here and I have to say I am pretty impressed. Making the triumvirate of Google Docs and Sheets whole, for a free app on your iPhone or iPad that gives you access to a presentation tool, it is really good.

Digital Storytelling With Comics

Digital Storytelling With Comics | educational transformation | Scoop.it

On Monday I published a short guide to digital storytelling with comics. This evening I gave a free webinar presentation based on that free guide. More than 200 people registered for the webinar in less than 48 hours. If you wanted to join and missed it, the recording of the webinar, sponsored by Storyboard That, is now available here and as embedded below.

Excellent guide about how comics can be used to create short stories or to storyboard a larger project. Links to free versions of related software too - StoryboardThat.com; WeVideo.com (for turning comic strips into movies) and WidBook.com (for creating multimedia ebooks - and it's also a collaborative writing platform).

This is worth checking out. I am always searching for new ways to reach my students.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, January 31, 2014 9:31 AM

This could be a very interesting program that could be used with students to review or retell what they have learned in a class.  We would love to teach this to your students and help them through their first project.  Any takers?
