Little Bird Tales is an app that allows students to create their own digital story. It’s easy to navigate, which makes it great for even the youngest children. The accompanying website can be used to upload stories, share photos, write journals, and further learn about digital storytelling. Additionally, once uploaded to the website, you can share your story, embed, create PDFs and MP4s. The website also offers user uploaded lesson plans and Common Core templates.
One downside is that the app isn’t free. It costs $2.99 in the App Store, but honestly the possibilities are endless and it’s a great way to incorporate technology into the classroom. It can be used with all types of assignments—from documenting science experiments to having students create their own personal stories. Parents can also use it to record family memories and events in albums. This is definitely a great multipurpose tool that can be used by kids and adults alike.
Once you’ve purchased the app and created an account, you’re ready to get started! You can create a title, can add text, and upload photos. Best of all, you can record your own audio as well as create original artwork in the app’s art pad. You can then preview your story and upload it to the website to share with others.
