All part and parcel of having your 'digital' voice heard.  Great tool.  

Allison Kenney's curator insight, October 16, 2014 8:46 AM

Not the same old PPT that we used to use.

Je suis de plus en plus convaincu qu'il faut raconter des histoires, même à des 'grands'.

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird | Web 2.0 Tools in the EFL Classroom | Scoop.it

I believe storytelling is a very powerful teaching resource for young learners. They feel comfortable with it, and when they read or listen to a story they stop caring about “understanding every single word" of it.

Susan's insight:

I have used Storytelling with 15-year olds!  They also loved it.  If you get your students to write their stories directed towards young children, it helps them to use simple vocabulary and structures which is great writing practice for them.  Afterwards they can share them on a wiki/blog/moodle site.  Very rich! I'm attaching two examples of my students' stories.

Great for students to make their own stories.

I haven't tried this, but it could be interesting. Any comments?
