The Product in Action

Choose a theme through a picture or a word.
Create a book.
I will later use this book page to write a story as a classroom example.
Publish Book for assignment.
Now you can publish the book and students can write out their own individual assignment on paper through the picture. This is used as the Do Now to get students started.
As I was working with my students during this project. I found that they were able to use the program well after they familiarized themselves with Storybird. I did have one student the lagged behind and this as because she does not have full use of a computer outside of school, so some of the issues that she had the day prior were still prevalent. For example, how to start the story, how to save the story, how to publish, add pages, moves images around, and how to begin typing.
One of my students completed her work early and I allowed her to help the two students that were not finished. As she helped the students, one of the students taught her how to move images over that would be dragged into the writing space and fill up the page. She taught her to simply drag the image further and a text box would come on the right side and in turn the student that showed some trouble learning the program later taught them how to move the image up to create a text box underneath the image.
The overall usability was far more simpler for them than it was for me. They were able to play around and figure tons of things out and show each other how to use the application. There interaction was as positive as the "Power Puff Girls", when they got along (that could be my interesting title).
