Digital Storytelling is a fantastic way to encourage students to develop products relating to the creative thought process while using problem-solving and language skills. Storybird is a great platform for this type of creative expression, especially for the primary grades. It allows the student to choose a theme consisting of a set of images and embed them in the pages of the digital book. The story is then saved on the website and can be shared with the class.
