Es una aplicación potente y muy fácil de usar que nos permite crear clips de vídeo reproduciendo una historia  con frases de texto que hayamos ideado entre dos o más personajes.


El video final se puede compartir directamente en Google+ o como un enlace para cualquier sitio que deseemos (por desgracia, no se muestra una vista previa o miniatura cuando se trata de compartir vídeo creado con StoryBuilder en Facebook).


Una gran herramienta.


De uso libre. (No tenemos que registrarte o iniciar sesión para acceder a ella).

"It’s easy to see how a free tool that connects you to your students can be helpful. But Google+is not something you simply pick up and assume everyone knows how to use. In fact, I’d recommend making sure everyone you want to speak with actually has an account first!


"Once that’s settled, it’s time to figure out the best ways to use Google+ to host a ‘hangout’ with your students, teachers, parents, admins, or friends. It’s relatively simple but there are a few tips and tricks you should know about in order to make the most of your time hanging out."

I love animation maps.  Great for getting students interested in learning.

This video does a fantastic job of showing how the United States has expanded and grown since its original 13 colonies. While many today might imagine that our nation was simply always this size in fact over many years of colonization, land purchases and land grabs America has eventually become what it is today.
