For teachers - some digital tools for writing and story telling



This post is about educational tools for writing or story telling.



The first tool I tried is Storybird.

It's about artful storytelling. You can choose different images and drawings from various artists and you (or your students) can create a story. That's my simple example for you:

Then I tried Magnetic Poetry.

You have some words to choose to create your own poem!
This is my crazy masterpiece!

I have also tried Wordle.
http://www.wordle.net/


It generates “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the text.This is an example:



 Ok, now you and your students can enjoy using words.... Create your own masterpiece!!
