Melissa Marshall's insight:

This app allows pictures, images and text to be combined into a document for visual storytelling. it is not a movie making app - it works kind of like an eBook. Lots of applications and I think younger students would benefit from this. It only works in iOS7.

Via John Dalziel
Melissa Marshall's insight:

GeoStories are published by National Geographic and contain a narrative, a map and media. It  would be a great idea for students to make their own GeoStory about a significant historical character, ancient civilisation or a journey of discovery!

John Dalziel's curator insight, December 20, 2013 5:03 PM

GeoStories are short, map-based stories featured on National Geographic Education.

The stories combine text, maps, and pictures to tell a story as a series of slides connected to placemarks on maps. National Geographic Education currently offers twenty GeoStories.

The current GeoStories cover subjects in the areas of...

- politics,

- ecology,

- music, and

- exploration.
The Geostories offer a good model of using maps to enhance the telling of a story.

Digital Storytelling with Voicethread (and How to Do It Offline) ~ Reflections of a Teacher and Learner

Digital Storytelling with Voicethread (and How to Do It Offline) ~ Reflections of a Teacher and Learner | Prendi eLearning Literacy & Humanities Technology | Scoop.it

by Dave Dodgson

 

"Another simple but effective web 2.0 tool I really like using is Voicethread. I love the interactivity it offers with different people able to leave messages on the same presentation slide as well as the option to combine images or text with audio or video comments. At the start of the school year, I was asked at work if I knew of any ways to make the activities we do for the school wiki more interactive and Voicethread was the first thing that came to mind. A crowd-sourced demo from my PLN and the suggestion that it could be used as practice for part of the Cambridge YLE Test speaking section was all it took to sell the idea."

 

Jim Lerman's comment:

 

Anyone have a tool/app they like better than Voicethread?
