How I Use It
I was teaching my students about fables and folk tales. As part of the unit, they needed to create their own original story. I had them use this site to illustrate their story.
My Take
I thought this was a great website for students to use their imaginations to create an original story. From a teacher aspect, it was easy to get the students set up in an account. I also like how the students work is submitted to me prior to it being released to the rest of the class. This feature also allows me to read it before hand and send back their projects with suggestions even when I am not in class! Makes grading a lot easier!
