Hope some of you might consider presenting for the K12 Online Conference 2014. (There's a Stories for Learning Strand.)

Session proposals are due Aug. 15.

If you aren't familiar with this conference, it's free and open and delivered through asynchronous videos, so no travel required!

TouchCast is one of the more impressive of the new Mobile storymaking apps I explored (http://touchcast.com/) but ir took me a while to understand how it works (and I missed some key elements).

Fortunately they have a new "official" manual that explains the authoring process

Young Writers Project, a Vermont-based nonprofit, is beginning its Summer of Storytelling on youngwritersproject.org with daily prompts centered on the elements of storytelling. Great response in the first day and a half. Kids are quite excited. 35+ posts and many, many comments. Fodder for future stories… http://bit.ly/1ni3ZAs  And, by the way, if you know of any kids aged 10-22 who'd like to participate, have them join in at youngwritersproject.org … looking for story mentors, too.

I'm not sure where this post fits, but we worked with a Ted conference by Tracy Chevalier, author of The Girl with the Pearl Earring and then learners used this website http://www.artofstorytelling.org to choose a painting and write their own story. We really loved this project.

+Alan Levine +Darren Kuropatwa Thank you, gentlemen--that hangout was fun and really useful for my nefarious purposes. Hope you don't mind that I did my radio interviewer thing--I seemed to be the only other one with an active agenda, so I just hopped in. If you want to do an on-line story spine writing prompt and story circle, I'm glad to facilitate--but also happy to subside and listen in...

+Alan Levine I enjoy working with Fotopedia as a photo and text creator. I wish it came with a Word Press embed code!

I really liked the design and ease of creation of Explory- put photos and videos in sequence, and than record audio narration on top.
