5 Creative Tools to Use with Google Classroom: Storybird (5 of 5)


Storybird picked this up as part of their Google Classroom case study. Check out their post. 

As the final installation in the 5 Creative Tools series, Storybird truly gets imaginations going. Essentially, it's a way for students to create their own book and publish it online. Storybird lets student choose the set of artwork they like, then write their story based on the images.

My kindergartener published her first book in about 30 minutes, so I know from experience this is an incredible tool for even the youngest budding author.

Check out how it works with Google Classroom in the screencast below.

    1. Thanks! I'm glad it's been useful. Once your students publish their work, feel free to post a few links in the comments here. It would be great to have some examples!

  2. Hi Nicholas Keith -- great video. We recently added the share to Google classroom button to Storybird. Could we pull some quotes from your video for use in a case study and blog post we are writing about Google and Storybird?
