How I Use It
I have students in my foreign language classes create many projects throughout the year based on themes in our course. Students have a choice of different digital tools to use to bring their story to life and make it unique and creative. Students find that it is an easy tool to use and helps them to build their technology skills and makes their learning more meaningful because they can select pictures and backgrounds which represent their interests and they recall information because of their association with the images and their work. Students did not need much assistance in figuring out how to create a book.
My Take
I think it is a great way for students or anyone to tell a story, create something vivid to represent learning in a unique way. I like the diverse books and themes created my the students, I enjoyed seeing the students have fun while working and learning and creating their own story. It was a great option for the diverse interests and creating a family album, a story about an event, tv show, or anything is easy and fun with Storybird. I have had several books printed and they are beautiful and really add to our classroom, seeing the students' names on the books and having additional meaningful, authentic learning materials. It is a nice way to give students a choice in how to express something they have learned,, tell a creative story based on the images, good for learners of any age, level or course. I also used it for some of my graduate coursework projects.
