Little Bird Tales - Digital Storytelling for Young Students

Little Bird Tales is a nice site intended for younger students to use to create digital stories. Little Bird Tales walks users through each step of creating a multimedia story. Users can upload images, draw images, or record from their webcams. Stories can be written with text or narrated by students using microphones connected to their computers. Watch the video below to learn more about Little Bird Tales.

Applications for Education
Little Bird Tales could be a good way for younger students to create fiction and non-fiction digital stories. When I tested Little Bird Tales, I used pictures of my dog and cats to illustrate and tell a short story about my pets.
