7 - Collaborative Digital Storytelling

Join our Storybird class with a collaborative writing partner. Search for an image or set of images to create a poem or picture book.

[Both partners create a storybird account and then join with class code. One partner starts a story and then 'Invite Collaborator]


Storybird reverses visual storytelling by starting with images and "unlocking" the story inside. Students can create unlimited art-inspired picture books, longform stories, and poetry.
