How I Use It
We used this for learning about storytelling and also to retell and summarize stories that we had read. My students really enjoyed creating their own stories from the characters and backgrounds available.
My Take
Toontastic is great for making videos to tell a story. I really like how the app is designed to encourage a story arc with a beginning, middle, and end. There are ways to modify the characters, but you have to repeat the modifications with each scene. I also wish there were a way to export your videos. Overall, though, the app is easy to use and good for individual or small group use.
