Story Dice - creative storytelling cubes for plot, character, and setting ideas for iPads

Story Dice - creative storytelling cubes for plot, character, and setting ideas, Fun for actors, writers, and friends!

Story Dice is a creative tool to prompt ideas for plot, character, and setting. This idea generator can be used effectively for both written and oral storytelling.

This app can be used with a wide variety of age groups ranging from preschoolers to teenagers.
The user interface is simple enough for ages 3+ to use without any additional instruction. The use of the app does not require reading, so it is an ideal tool for using in a preschool story circle (see lesson plans) as well as a general writing prompt for all ages without reading or native language barriers.

Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom

Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom | Language,literacy and numeracy in all Training and assessment | Scoop.it

Kevin McLaughlin writes a great post sharing: What is Digital Literacy

 

Futurelab, an organisation ‘committed to developing creative and innovative approaches to education, teaching and learning’, gives the following definition in its publication Digital Literacy across the curriculum:

 

To be digitally literate is to have access to a broad range of practices and cultural resources that you are able to apply to digital tools. It is the ability to make and share meaning in different modes and formats; to create, collaborate and communicate effectively and to understand how and when digital technologies can best be used to support these processes.
