Comic Creator The Comic Creator invites students to compose their own comic strips for a variety of contexts (prewriting, pre- and postreading activities, response to literature, and so on). The organizers focus on the key elements of comic strips by allowing students to choose backgrounds, characters, and props, as well as to compose related dialogue (shown at left). This versatile tool can be used by students from kindergarten through high school, for purposes ranging from learning to write dialogue to an in-depth study of a formerly neglected genre. The tool is easy to use, made even easier with the Comic Strip Planning Sheet, a printable PDF that comic creators can use to draft and revise their work before creating and printing their final comics. After completing their comic, students have the ability to print out and illustrate their final versions for feedback and assessment. Grades K – 3 | Lesson Plan | Standard Lesson

Think of how a baby learns by putting everything into its mouth, feeling it and turning it to look at the object. Datenglish: Creating eBooks with learners Project: Students create their own E-Textbooks Why this project? I think that helping them create their own E-Textbooks would be just one more way to express my gratitude to my learners for sharing our learning journey. I feel this is a powerful way to develop pride in their learning process as well as develop self-awareness of their achievements during the year.

Powerful Tools for Teaching and Learning: Digital Storytelling About the Course Powerful Tools for Teaching and Learning: Digital Storytelling introduces educators to digital storytelling and explores ways to use digital stories to enhance students’ learning experience. The course is designed to be comprehensive yet fundamental. To Market, To Market Marketing departments at publishing houses have a daunting task, figuring out how to use shrinking budgets to create promotional materials that are actually effective for the publisher and useful to the bookseller. So what works? What do we love seeing in our bookstores? What gets tossed out without a further glance? Whereas a centralized bookselling corporation may have one buyer to please, indies range in size, scope, and individual buyer preferences.

One of the most amazing websites on there for creative writing. My kids loved this last year when we created stories. We created a couple of stories as a class and they also created many stories on their own. Teacher is able to post comments on any story. by esteban_cole Jul 15

Hi, I started using the tool yesterday and I'm liking it already. I created a sample story in Spanish for my 7th/8th class to get them going. We'll see what happens. It definitely has a lot of potential. If the experiments are succesful, I'm thinking about suggesting my school to pay for it so the students can download the pdf versions of their stories (I'm not sure if they are limited to just 1) and print them if they want. Just the option of having them on an iPad would be nice. Thank you for sharing your experiences. Cheers by ccondeo Jun 3

really like this cloud resource, I use in all classes from kindergarten til highschool & at home too. Thx 4 your comments! by ulrikajonson May 16

if you use a screen casting option while under the publish tab you can read the story, while flipping the pages and recording the whole production! by intel_engage Apr 24

I really like the collaboration feature on storybird. Has anyone ever used 2 students to collaborate on a story? Share some examples. by intel_engage Apr 24

Storybird is a powerful digital storytelling tool. I have had teachers create the story with their class and instantlypublish it by playing it on their Interactive Whiteboard. It offers so many characters/pictures to choose from, it is very colorful and pretty easy to use. The only feature it is missing is the option to print. I usually take screenshots and staple it together after I print it but that is alot of work for the normal individual. by intel_engage Apr 24

Yes, it is. There are so many anguage activities and projects you can do with it... by inma_a Jun 25
