So Excited About Storybird!

I can barely contain myself with this new tool that I stumbled upon!  It is called Storybird at  As a special education teacher I am always looking for new and interesting ways to help my students express themselves and engage them interactively.  They are growing up in a digital age and we need to meet them in their comfort zone.  Storybird allows students to choose from tons of beautiful artwork and create a "storyboard" and then create a story to go with it.  It is almost like writing a picture book by illustrating it first.  I am so excited!  I know I am a geek, but this stuff makes me want to do a happy dance :)  Here is a sample story from their website (not created by a student, but still an awesome example to see!)

Decisions. Decisions! on Storybird
