Little Bird Tales

I was searching for new Web 2.0 tools to share with everyone.  I came across .  Little Bird Tales is an interactive site that allows teachers and students to create a story by drawing the artwork on every page, authoring the story and record their voice telling the story.  It is FREE to use and save your students stories right on your school page.  Parents and relatives can view the stories and buy them if they choose.  This site is easy to use and I think can be used by all age students.  Little bird tales can be used to fulfil ISTE Standard 1:  Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology.

Little Bird Tales also has an app on the iphone.  Here is a related article discussing how easy it is to use little bird tales as an app as well as the iTunes description and plug for the app.

  1. This seems like a really cute idea! I watched the YouTube video that is posted on their websites and think this would be a great way to tell and share digital stories with students at any age level. In my opinion the hardest part of telling a digital story is finding the time to find appropriate and fair use artwork that fits with the content. With this, taking a digital photograph of the student's work and uploading it will allow for creative projects with artwork that is personalized and legal. Thanks for sharing this Stacey!
