Storybird Quick Tour from Storybird on Vimeo.

New collaborative story creation and publishing platform.

Free and still in beta, but it will soon offer printing service too.

Looks cool, and I guess it could be used with young story tellers as quite a power tool.
Probably good platform for teachers to create their own resources.

You need to sign up for free account and off you go.

Look at some examples here:


What do you think?

Social Media Classroom

Howard Rheingold's model platform for
Participatory Pedagogy

The greatest value that the SMC can add to a learning community is its ability to support a movement away from education as delivery of knowledge toward education as critical, collaborative inquiry—a student-centric pedagogy that engages students in actively constructing knowledge together, rather than passively absorbing it from texts, lectures, and discussions

Stanford School of Engineering

Stanford School of Engineering

"For the first time in its history, Stanford is offering some of its most popular engineering classes free of charge to students and educators around the world. Stanford Engineering Everywhere (SEE) expands the Stanford experience to students and educators online. A computer and an Internet connection are all you need. View lecture videos, access reading lists and other course handouts, take quizzes and tests, and communicate with other SEE students, all at your convenience.

This fall, SEE launches its programming by offering one of Stanford’s most popular sequences: the three-course Introduction to Computer Science taken by the majority of Stanford’s undergraduates and seven more advanced courses in artificial intelligence and electrical engineering.

Stanford Engineering Everywhere offers:

  • Anytime and anywhere access to complete lecture videos via streaming or downloaded media.
  • Full course materials including syllabi, handouts, homework, and exams.
  • Online social networking with fellow SEE students.
  • Support for PCs, Macs and mobile computing devices.

Stanford encourages fellow educators to use Stanford Engineering course materials in their own classrooms। A Creative Commons license allows for free and open use, reuse, adaptation and redistribution of Stanford Engineering Everywhere material." (from Stanford University home page)
