Storyboard That is a fantastic Web 2.0 tool for digital storytelling w/ educational portal. This portal allows for educators to create student accounts (even batch upload) and assign them to their class via a URL and unique code (i.e. ClassDojo). Not only can and educator create, manage, adjust privacy settings, and more, they can create storyboard templates and assignments for their class. Everything is COPPA compliant and very safe to use in an educational setting.
Storyboard That is a very easy tool to use w/ it's drag-n-drop interface and allows students to seamlessly create a storyboards by adding images, clip art, text, record narration, etc. There is even a innovative slideshow button that turns storyboards into slideshows that easily allows for students or teachers to share their presentations up on a big screen. A finished product can then be downloaded as a PDF, shared via a link, exported into a PPT, or embedded into a site/blog.
Best of all are the new "Teacher Guides" that are aligned to Common Core standards and contain plot diagrams, Q/A, character maps, and much much more. Educators are using these for project based learning, digital storytelling, and in a number of different ways to assess student's learning on a project or story.
Also, a student/teacher has the ability to create timelines. Once a timeline is created they then have the option to add a date, text, image, or select one of the many templates/styles of their choice (i.e web, t-chart, grid, etc.). This is a simple and great way to make a timeline or graphic organizer. Educators can use this to create templates and then have students fill it out online thr
