StoryKeepers - iPad StoryTelling APPS
StoryTelling continues to gain popularity as an educational experience creating MORE "sticking power" for concepts a la brain science as well as developing essential communication skills for a media-rich world vying for attention. StoryTelling stimulates deep thinking, creativity and basic literacies; it also enhances and enriches the learning experience for student voices.Storytelling is an art form that uses a story ARC regardless of digital tools used while modernizing the traditional oral storytelling.

Ensure that there is an insight or strong reflective conclusion that reveals the POINT of the storytelling or message! Video-Editing for Film Making APPS Splice [FREE and $3.99 PRO]
