Create an electronic storybook. Make use of the little gaps in life – on the sofa after dinner, in the back seat of the car, or on a train – to do something creative together.
To create your story:
- Write some text.
- Illustrate by drawing on the screen, taking a photograph of something you see, or drawing on paper and then photographing the paper, or attaching photos from your album.
- Sounds can be recorded for telling your story or as sound effects.
- Layout the elements of your story (text boxes, images, and sound clips) freely by dragging them or pinching to resize.
- Add, reorder, or delete pages from your book.
Your story is always saved in your iPhone. Carry it with you and work on it any time. Upload your story to the StoryKit web server and email a link to the story from within the app. No account is necessary. Stories are private.
The application includes four public domain children's books that you can rewrite and rearrange into your own new story. These are scans of the original bound books that have been specially processed for use on the iPhone. Take "The Three Bears" and make them four. Rewrite "The Three Little Pigs" with the wolf as the victim. Or, start with a blank book and write whatever story is on your minds.
|StoryKit||Free||Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch.|
It is a simple tool, yet it contains diverse features. Student can import photos from their camera roll, draw pictures, record their voices and insert text. It is an excellent tool to convey information or create digital stories. You can create several pages within the presentation. You can share it on the StoryKit server and receive a url for the story or you can email it.
It is limited in that it will not (at this point) export to an ebook reader.
