How I Use It
I have set up class accounts for students in grades 3-7. Young writers really love publishing their Storybirds. Each time I have introduced it to a class, students have gone home and written on their own--- it is a very motivating platform. The artwork helps inspire and provides a starting point for anyone who needs a little nudge.
My Take
Storybird allows students to write and share their stories online. The range of artwork available is stunning, and high quality. The tool allows teachers to set up class accounts and control privacy. The true beauty of this tool lies in the sharing, where young writers gain an audience, and followers and comments build confidence.
