Digital Storytelling Odds & Ends

Little Bird Tales is geared towards younger children. This site lets them create storybooks by uploading  photos and scanned drawings, create drawings online and recording audio directly from your microphone.  This free site has no advertising. A nice tool for younger children and families. (via: Free Technology for Teachers)

Pummelvision, a fun tool that makes a great video out of your photos, has added some features. Choice of speeds for the photos to flash by, order of the photos, support for Facebook albums, select a particular flickr set and support for other photo sources. Love the 18 Leotards in 30 Seconds video on the gallery page. These changes make this a tool worth looking at as a creative presentation tool. I’m adding it to the class resource page for my Digital Storytelling & Presentation Tools workshop.

VoiceThread has added a handy feature to easily search for and import creative commons licensed photos from Flickr. Credit and links back to the original photos are included in your VoiceThread production. (via: @judygressel)

Welcome to Pine Point – An amazing & very engaging example of interactive storytelling. Or is a movie? Or an interactive movie? Or a ‘liquid book’? Or the most amazing scrapbook ever made? You tell me.  (via @teach42)
