A Presentation App That Forces You To Tell Better Stories

A Presentation App That Forces You To Tell Better Stories | LearningTech | Scoop.it
The dangers of bad a PowerPoint presentation are manifold. It might just mean putting your audience to sleep, or running afoul of the High Council of Information Design.

 

Now here's something that looks promising! I'm downloading the storytelling app now to my iPad so I can start playing with it. I'll let you know how it goes.

 

We all need better and easier tools to create digital stories. Part of the trick is figuring out which one YOU like. So I'll keep posting different apps and technologies that appear so you can try them out and decide which one works best for you.

 

Have fun with this one! If you try it out, what do you think of it?
