Cette liste pratique présente de manière synoptique les principales fonctionnalités des meilleurs outils de storytelling  digital dans le domaine de l'éducation et en général. Une liste utile sous réserve d'avoir conçu en amont un storytelling créatif, attachant ...et d'y faire correspondre le ou les "medias" qui le valorisent le plus.

review by Michael Karlin...rated Outstanding


And that's the app!  Yes, it's incredibly simple, but I think that's perfect for this application because it can be used at all ages without much difficulty.  It takes less than 30 seconds to figure out how the application works and it can be integrated in a huge variety of subjects.  

Students can narrate their understanding of virtually any topic and then share those narrations with the class or the teacher.  It's an excellent, easy way to get students talking and sharing what they understand about a particular idea.


My only suggestion would be for them to include a drawing tool (sort of like VoiceThread offers) so that students could add lines or shapes to the images as well.  

Other than that, I love the simplicity, I think it's an excellent app for the classroom, it could be used in all subjects and grade levels, and to top it all off, it's completely free!

It is an easy tool to help students create quick digital stories or informational videos to illustrate concepts and topics.
