Fun With Google!

Last week, we had Michael Wacker as a guest speaker for ECMP355. He talked to us about Google and the many different things that could be done with it. A lot of the info he gave us was brand new to me and some of it was just better explaining some of the tools that I already knew about, such as Google Docs.

We were asked to find a Google feature/product that we might use with students. I chose the Google Story Builder. I mainly picked this because I saw a classmate, Shauna Norman, talk about it and I wanted to look more into it.

Essentially what it is is a “live” storyteller. It shows the characters typing their part of the story and collaborating to build it. Music can also be added to the story. I would definitely try to incorporate this into the classroom so that students could work together on a story to share with the class. It would be fun to see the stories that they come up with and the way that they tell it!

Here is a video I made to show you what it’s about and to deliver some exciting news!!

  1. This was a great way to use the Google Story Builder. I think this would be an awesome learning tool for the elementary age as well as the high school age. Congratulations on your engagement!
