Storyjumper

Principal function(s): Storytelling

Storyjumper is a website that offers teachers and students the chance to create their own digital books. There is a teacher option, including creating a template for students to use. Users can write and create their own stories by adding text, characters, images and background. They can upload their own images or use the ones provided by the website. They can also make voice recordings or add background music that accompany their stories. Changes in the book are saved automatically. Students can work together on the same book.

Evaluation: Storyjumper is an interactive, creative and fun way to encourage students to practice their writing and pronunciation skills. It is a useful tool for project work or to support collaboration between students. While initial set-up time is quite high, students may find the creation engaging and motivating.

Cost: Free with registration
