Welcome to Storyboard That

Welcome to Storyboard That | Language, Brains, and ELL News | Scoop.it

Storyboard That presents a great opportunity for students to work together. When creating a storyboard students can discuss what they want their story to say, how to structure it, and of course what imagery to use. After they are created students can’t wait to share their storyboards with their friends and get their feedback, and make their own storyboards that much better. For a lot of people the free version of Storyboard That will work just great. For those of you that need more power though, we encourage you to upgrade. See: http://www.storyboardthat.com/Purchase
