This presentations clearly explains what makes a good story - you need to devise conflict, develop characters and add efficient details.  I enjoy this presentation because it explains the details of storywriting with a variety of interesting visuals, which makes it more entertaining to read.

10 iPad Apps To Record How Students Learn

10 iPad Apps To Record How Students Learn | Indy Publishing | Scoop.it

"

"For all of the analyses of academics, learning models, curriculum, 21st century thinking, assessment, project-based learning, self-directed learning, social media integration, iPads and related technology, and other emerging trends, how students learn is why we’re all here, yes?

 

And understanding how something happens requires observation as an early step. What’s developing, when and how?

 

Where are the misunderstandings? What is not clear? Where is the learning being successful that I’m missing? And how can I share not just the end product but the proces itself–the idea behind project-based learning–with a much larger audience?

 

Below are 10 iPad apps to get started in that direction."
