This was very interesting and even though I teach kindergarten, this webinar provided me with creative ways to help my students create their own writing as well.

Can't wait to try it out with young and/or disabled students. I have ideas of morning circle time. Calendar, days of the week, months of the year, plethora of activities jumping around in my brain.

I love the digital storytelling applications you shared in this webinar. I accessed the Little Bird Tales application and watched the introduction video. Creating a simple story using you voice overlay is great! You can also share the digital story with parents or in class use as part of a lesson plan. I will use this for my great nephew who is being home schooled. He is two years old and loves animal images and simulating animal sounds. What a wonderful way to connect with digital storytelling: Little Bird Tales at home or in class!
