So Videoscribe is a great fun tool to create digital stories with – you can add your own images or use the ones from the library, add text, sounds or record your voice. Then You set camera angles for creating the animation. It is easy to use Mr 6 and I have been playing with for some time now. I have used it with my year 7 class and they loved it too. It is a little on the expensive side at just over $5 but works really well. Created animations, digital stories can be sent to camera roll, uploaded to you tube, twitter etc. Once in your camera roll you can email them or download them to your computer photo library. Too easy and very cool for explaining a concept, showing key understandings or creating a digital story. You could even use videoscribe hd as a flow chart or a timeline. It creates a funky animated story of your sequence of events which you can then share. Here is one of Mr 6′s efforts.
