"t was not long ago that producing multimedia digital content required expensive equipment and deep levels of technical expertise. We are at the point now where anyone can create and publish very compelling content with nothing more complex than a web browser.
"The point is not that these are professional level production tools, but that the barrier of entry to content creation can be drastically low. And you should find a new mode of creativity when the tool have some limits as to what they can do-- and find that the core of the story is much more important than a widget."
Jim Lerman's insight:
This is Alan Levine's classis wiki from 2007, most recently updated in May, 2013. The site links to, names, and briefly describes more than 50 web 2.0 tools to use and share with students for many forms of storytelling. Be sure to check oout the "New Tools to Be Added" link in the navigation bar. It goes to a page containing tools that Levine is still considering for addition to his list. Readers may suggest tools to add as well.
