Juliana Loh's curator insight, August 9, 2013 4:32 PM

Ease of use is the order of the day. It's not that you 'can' create stories... the question is 'how' and whether or not your target audience (in this case children) can do it within the realm of their specific capacities. This little platform holds promise. Thanks Karen for highlighting this!

Karen Dietz's comment, August 9, 2013 5:59 PM
My pleasure Juliana and your points are well taken. I wish I had more time to actually try out each tool I come across. I hope this one works well. I figure if a kid can do it, so can I :) And to your point -- yes, if you know 'how' to craft a compelling story, you will win with this app. So you've got to be a good storyteller first.

We have a BYOD program, but now what? [guest post] | Dangerously Irrelevant

We have a BYOD program, but now what? [guest post] | Dangerously Irrelevant | Technology | Scoop.it

"“Our students deserve a 21st century education.” I’ve heard this often during my career, and while I can sometimes name the 4 Cs, I’m concerned that educators are trying to adapt 20th century practices and experiences to the future we can’t even define yet. This phenomenon manifests itself typically by the rapid and ill-advised adoption of any and all technological products, i.e. hardware, software, personal devices, portable devices, and on and on and on. While it is true the technology and expertise necessary to manipulate this technology are important to 21st century skills, we, as educators, must not fall into the trap of imposing our cemented perspectives cured from our fleeting experiences of the past upon the students of the future. In this wave of Bring Your Own Device or Technology, depending on which variant you prefer, (BYOD), the instructional shift that must happen to fully capture the power of this movement is grossly behind the crest."
