Story Robe in Grade Three

Since getting the IPad last week I have been using various apps to reinforce concepts taught so far.  Each year I have my students make a story vine (basically a summary using visual cues) about a story they've read.  This year I am going to use the Story Robe app to display and record the students story vines.  After completion I hope to post them to the class wiki.  I will keep you posted on how it turns out.

We have now completed out Story Vine Project.  The students used the App Story Robe easily.  They were able to click through their pictures and record their retelling easily.  The pictures from the Ipad were good and the mic worked well in the classroom.  The problems occurred when I emailed  the Story Robe link and tried to post it to the class Wiki.  My husband had to convert the link to a file attachable to the Wiki.  After much work the students Story Vine presentations using Story Robe are on our Wiki.  I am not sure I would use this App again with the intent of the final product going on the Wiki.

  1. Looking forward to seeing how it goes. I have my story ready for the students to comment on so we'll see how they do. I'm concerned about if one of them makes a mistake and we have to redo it. I'm not sure this is the best application--but we'll see.
