Two Great Google Story Telling Tools for Teachers

Looking for some digital storytelling tools for your students ? Google has got two wonderful applications which I have already reviewed here in two separate posts. Check them out below :

1- Google Story Builder

Story Builder allows you to create mini-movies or video stories with the feel of Google Docs. You can also personalize the videos you create using the characters, story, and even music of your choosing and when you finish you can share your final product with others.

Story Builder can be used by students to create their own stories . These stories are limited to only 10 characters and 10 exchanges to which can be added different sound effects. There are four steps you need to follow to create your story :

1- Add characters to your Story Builder
2-Write your Story
3- Give the title and add sound track
4- Share your story with others

Tour Builder is a cool web tool that allows users to create narrative stories using text, graphics, pictures, videos and Google Maps.Tour Builder lets you pick the locations right on the map, add in photos, text, and video, and then share your creation. Currently, Tour builder is still in beta version and it requires the Google Earth plugin which is only available for Windows and Mac OS X 10.6+.
