Digital storytelling with StoryRobe

Digital storytelling with StoryRobe
StoryRobe is another way for kids to create digital stories using photos or digital copies of their own artwork. Once they've selected the images they want to use and put them in the right order, they can record the text to go with the images. They can talk for a total of up to 3 minutes, and synchronize the images with what they are saying by tapping the screen as they talk to advance to the next picture. StoryRobe creates a single video file that can then be shared. Unlike StoryKit, there is no option to add text to the finished product, as the model is more video-like than book-like. There are ways to add it it to the pictures however. I initially thought that one drawback to working with StoryRobe is that once you start the process of adding pictures to your story, you really have to complete the story (including adding audio) in one sitting. I have not always been successful in creating StoryRobe stories - the process seems to fail at the point of creating the finished video.
