Storyboard That | technologies | Scoop.it
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.
