I really enjoyed playing around with this tool, and I think my students will find it fun too! My students love using pictures to generate stories, and this will make that so much easier and the way it is set up allows them so much creative freedom! I can see applications for this across all of the subjects that I teach, which has me very excited.

I will definitely use this resource in my classroom. Last year I had great success using http://www.voki.com for students to create their own avatars to teach about SOL (standards of learning test) words. We loaded them on our class WIKI to review for their tests.

This is my first experience with Storybird and I like it. I created this one to say goodbye to my teenage daughter. I found it fun and easy to create. I know my students will enjoy making their own poetry books and stories in Storybird.

StoryBird is an excellent site for struggling writers. The picture prompts help generate ideas for creative writing and help students organize their writing as it is easy to change the order of pages and change the pictures. This site also works with word prediction programs for students who struggle with spelling.
They can share their work (with parents/grandparents/cousins/etc) which makes it valuable as kids love to write for authentic audiences greater than one (the teacher).
It's one of the tools highlighted on the UDL Tech Toolkit wiki Writing Resource page (http://udltechtoolkit.wikispaces.com/Writing+tools)

I've used Storybird in my classroom, and my students loved it. I was able to share the stories on our wiki site. I also wrote about Storybird in my blog http://bit.ly/nYnVL1.

Thank you for sharing your experiences. Your idea to have your students show what they knew about story elements is a fantastic idea. The step-by-step is great! Thank you!
