I think students would find this tool very engaging and it is a great way to differentiate assessments allowing students a choice of presentation tools.

I think this has the potential to be an excellent tool for the lassroom. Not only would it allow for differentiation as Jenni had stated, but would allow ESL students an avenue to express themselves through various means other than just writing.

Free and easy tool for creating multimedia stories and presentations, and sharing them with anyone. Upload your photos, add audio, video or text and publish the story.

You can sign up with your Facebook account or your email.

 

Educators have an option to pay a membership fee ($4.99 /mo. or $50 /yr.) to create 50 student accounts which are protected from the public. Before you decide on this step, there is a 30-day free trial.

This looks like an awesome student storytelling platform.

Very interesting and a very simple tool for those who just want to tell stories, alone or with a group, by quickly adding pictures, video, and voiceover to narrate through the presentation. Looks like a pretty new site and it has both free and paid accounts.

Has great possibilities: would need to check out the educator costs
