Our “Story Book App Creation Residency” is a fun filled 3 or 5 day program where students create a story book app with their own illustrations, animations, voice readings, sound effects and illustrations. (Click here or on the image of the “Oh The Things I Can Do” to watch a video sample of a book.)
Students are taken through the process of story creation. After the story has been written, they work with their art teacher and Sean to create a storyboard and illustrations to accompany the story. Sean then brings a complete digital recording studio and records the students telling the story and sound effects.
Once all the content has been created, Mr. Driscoll will compile the story into a digital app for distribution. There are several formats available including apps for iPhone, iPad, Andriod devices and Kindle and Ibook Readers. Each class will create one story book. This a wonderful time for kids to learn to work in teams and collaborate. The residency has curriculum connections with technology, literature, reading and art.
