Storyboard That: A FREE Online Storyboard Creator

Storyboard That: A FREE Online Storyboard Creator | technologies |
Looking for an amazing, fun, free, and easy to use online storyboard creator? See why students, screenwriters, and businesses love Storyboard That.
John Dalziel's insight:

Storyboard That is an on-line service that provides templates in which practitioners, and/or learners, can create their stories in a comic strip style.
Storyboard That provides...
   -  dozens of scenes,
   -  characters, and
   -  text bubbles fill users' storyboard's frames.
Each element that's dragged into a storyboard frame can be...
   -  re-sized,
   -  rotated, and
   -  re-positioned.
The completed storyboard can be saved as...
   -  a comic strip,
   -  a set of images (one image for each frame), or
   -  a set of PowerPoint slides.
In the teachers' resources section there are lesson plans for teaching language arts through comic creation.
NOTE: the free version allows only 2 creations per week, only 3 and 6 cell comic strips and the Powerpoint and High Resolution exports are watermarked.

Mi sembra di averlo già segnalato, ma meglio abbondare comunque.

GeoStories | technologies |
GeoStories combine interactive maps, media, and narrative. This collection contains all GeoStories from NG Education.
John Dalziel's insight:

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.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, December 21, 2013 5:06 PM

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!

UtellStory - Tell Stories, Share Topics, Make Impact

UtellStory - Tell Stories, Share Topics, Make Impact | technologies |
A multimedia storytelling and sharing community.
John Dalziel's insight:

UtellStory is a multimedia storytelling and sharing community where practitioners, and/or learners, can easily create and share stories with...
   - audio,
   - image,
   - video and
   - words.
Users don’t have to use all of these media together in one story but they can if its necessary.
A story can be as simple as one photo or can be a combination of multiple images, video, audio recording and background music.
The idea is to empower users to tell their stories, engage learners and make an impact.

Storyboard That

Storyboard That | technologies |
Storyboard That is a cutting edge Web 2.0 tool for rapidly creating amazing storyboards, no art skills needed. Great for business meetings and in the classroom for students to express their creativity.
John Dalziel's insight:

Storyboard provides a fun and creative way for learners to learn, and an innovative and fun way to visually communicate their work.

Many are visual learners, finding text heavy going and documents to be quite boring.

Creating a good storyboard is a collaborative process, and the more they share the better their outcome.

Tina Jameson's curator insight, August 29, 2013 3:50 PM

Useful innovative tool, which would be great for those students planning their 'Book Trailers'.
