Toontastic App 101 Video


Toontastic is an amazing app for storytelling in the classroom. The basic app is free and has plenty to offer a classroom but I know you will want to get the “all access pass” once you play with it some. In the video I mention a Martin Luther King lesson and you can find more info on that here.

Storytelling or apps or creating are the most powerful and I have a list of my 33 favorites here, several with example lessons.
