1 minute weekly web wonder – Week 16
Thank goodness it’s Friday, to help brighten up your day and to help you with your planning at weekends, I will be posting a weekly web based idea that will take just 1 minute of your time to read about. If you like what you read then why not try it out in your lessons the following week.
Storybird – http://storybird.com/
If you want to add an element of literacy into your lessons why not get your students to create their own short art inspired stories based on what they are learning in your subject at the moment. These stories can then be shared, read or printed. They can even embed them on to the Facebook accounts and get feedback from others. It is really easy to use, I set up a teacher or class account so others in the class could use the same log in details. Here is my first ever storybird called The Chicken and the cakes, it took the sum total of 2 minutes to produce and I do believe it has the potential of winning the Man Booker prize winner for this year!
