There are many apps for creating story books available in the app stores. A majority of them offers interactive features like audio narration. Story Creator is one of our favorite apps for this purpose. Students can create books with images, drawings, text, and a read-a-long audio narration. The app allows students to align the written words with the audio track, so each word is highlighted when read. Story creator also features a very simple and student friendly interface, which limits time spent learning the app.
How It Works?
Story Creator allows several different methods for telling a story. Students can use either an image, video clip, or drawing on each page. They will then add text accompanied by an audio narration.
Adjusting the words over the audio levels can be touchy. Instruct students to go slowly and be patient when adjusting the words over the peaks. Students will also need to be equipped with headphones to listen carefully their narration.
The app can also pick up other students recording their own audio in the background. Disperse your students around the room and take turns to ensure clear audio.
