How I Use It
I use the website Storyjumper with my 5th grade students. I was looking for another website program that would allow students to create and edit stories. I applied for our school's account. I found this site to be a little confusing to understand and hard to set up. I abandoned the website after 2 weeks of frustration from my students and myself. I look forward to other reviews to see if I am making this site harder to use than I am making it out to be,
My Take
I found this site to be a little confusing to understand and hard to set up. In my opinion there are better sites and apps for story writing.
