Tip of the Week: June 15, 2012: Storybird - Collaborative Storytelling

"Storybird reverses the process of visual storytelling by starting with the image and "unlocking" the story inside. Choose an artist or a theme, get inspired, and start writing."

"A new literacy tool for a new generation
Storybirds are short, art-inspired stories that are curiously fun to make, share, and read. Teachers love them because they inspire their most reluctant writers and readers and reward their most adventurous. Kids adore them because they feel empowered by the tools and supported by the social feedback. Sign up today for a free Class account!"

No student emails required:   Sign up and manage your students without requiring email addresses. Reset passwords when kids forget theirs.
Safe, secure, and private:  Set privacy levels and never worry about safety. Storybird has no chat function or personal profiles and administrators moderate all public books and comments.
Unlimited classes:  Start as many classes as you need and manage them from one simple dashboard. Tailor Class privacy settings, comments, and discussion threads to suit your students requirements or maturity.
Assignments:  Create thematic assignments within seconds to support your lesson plans. Assign privacy settings, turn Spellcheck on or off, and issue due dates. All using an intuitive interface.
Beautiful class libraries:  Automatically generate thematic libraries from your student's stories. Share them with parents and other schools.
