Art Fun For Fridays - Storybird
Last week while subbing, one of my classes was working on a project that intertwines art with writing, by using Storybird. If you aren't familiar with Storybird, the idea is that the writing/illustrating process is reversed, with students creating their story based on a collection of illustrations, rather than finding images to fit their story. While some teachers may not like the idea that students don't create their own images, I like Storybird for the fact that it privileges art in the real world, as well as promoting current artists. Students can also move their stories beyond the digital realm and have their finished stories published in physical book form.
