Little Bird Tales – Digital Storytelling
How the site works – Once you have created a movie you can email the link to the movie, embed it into a website, print the pages as a pdf or purchase the mp4 file for 99 cents. I plan to print it and send to the link to parents. If they want to purchase that will be their option. You do not have to spend any money to create, share or view the movies. Only to download the mp4 file.
To get started…
First you need to set up an account and make sure to check the box that it is a teacher account. You can search for your school on the list or add it if it is not there. I had to add my school and pick the school code. Pretty easy to understand when you register. After you are registered this is the home page
**After the kids finish their drawing they have to press save twice. Once before closing the window and a second time by pressing the “save and continue” green button on the bottom right of the picture above. You can add audio to the cover page and change the title as you like.
Now that you are a pro at creating a book it is time to set up your class. Press the home button and look for the orange “manage classes” button (under the blue arrow in the picture below)
How do the kids login? What do they see?
*Note- as a teacher you will only use the first two boxes to login. The school code is only needed for the students.
I am excited about this site because after I get the kids comfortable with using it I can send it home the link and information and let them explore and create!
How do you see this being used in your class? I would love ideas and suggestions!
