Storybird: Digital storytelling and digital story creating

storybird

Years ago, my daughter had the time of her life at Mary White’s Storytelling computer camp. For one week she created digital stories culminating in a gloriously bound book that we still display today, fifteen years’ later. I think this became a pivotal moment for her and one of the reasons she had a YA blog today.

Fast forward to today: Storybird offers the sameWeb 2.0 magic as that glorious computer camp experience. Storybirds are “short, art-inspired stories you make to share, read, and print. Read them like books, play them like games, and send them like greeting cards.” I absolutely love the backstory behind Storybirds.

Sign up for a free storyboard account as a teacher, student, or “Regular”. (I love being “regular” don’t you?). Being a “Regular” makes it simple for families and friends to create short, visual stories together that they can share and print.

Creators can choose from tagged sets of beautiful artwork, add text by typing or copy and pasting.

Publishing options are either “Private” or “Public”. Both options allow email announcements.

Take a fun summer moment and create a Storybird.
