Storyboard That Top Features

Storyboard That the wonderful site that educators are using for a variety of purposes such as: digital storytelling, project based learning, as a graphic organizer, timeline creator, and more, has been hard at work creating "top" new features for the summer as well as some great ideas for Back to School.

Storyboard That had some pretty big updates come out this summer to make using Storyboard That even easier for teachers to use.  There is a new teacher dashboard which has an even more polished look w/ a "featured" activity section as well as links to tons of teacher guides/lesson plans.  Also, there are excellent reporting features which makes assessing students and tracking student data that much easier.

Storyboard That Smart Scenes are scenes that can be customized in one way or another, similar to how we can customize characters. So far, we have 60+ Smart Scenes! These scenes will have a blue ‘Edit Scene’ button (in the same place that a character’s ‘Edit Pose’ button is) that allows the user to edit things such as time of day (daytime to nighttime), weather (raining, snowing, sunny), and more!

The Storyboard That Save History feature allows users to pull up previously saved versions of their storyboards in case they want to go back and fix something, or just in case they want to see a previous version! You can find this feature by clicking the ‘View Save History’ button below a storyboard that you have edited and saved at least once before. 

Finally, Storyboard That has updated their character animations to allow for more customized movement as well as a 15 x 9 layout template.  They even created a bunch of lesson plans for Back to School.  These detailed plans help teachers start out the year and integrate technology into the classroom.  For more info on how to use Storyboard That for starting off the school year click here.
