Creation and Editing Tools: Book Creators -Storybird

Storybird is an application where one can make specific storybooks. The exciting thing about Storybird is that a teacher can invite the whole class as collaborators.

In my lesson plan about Diabetes, I can generate multiple topics to be covered. Each student will pick a topic by drawing it out of a hat (literally!)

I made an assignment within the application to be shared with my students, asking them to make their very own Diabetes Awareness Book/Booklet to be handed out at school during the month of November (Diabetes Awareness Month).

However, the downside with Storybird, is that one cannot upload any images. This means the students have to choose from Storybird’s library of very artful images, though not much focus on diabetes or health.

I found this to be a deal breaker as I do not quite see how I can utilize this tool connects to the content.  I am choosing a different way for my students to publish their Diabetes Awareness booklet.
