In a learning scenario, “starting with pictures” is powerful: it stirs
the emotions while it engages the brain and jumpstarts students into
their text, avoiding the blank-page syndrome. And it's effective. Schools

“Storybird can be used by all ages, for all different subjects... Students can rewrite a classic... explain a science concept or retell a historical event. You can team students up to collaborate... As you can see, the sky is the limit with Storybird.... just let the creativity happen and their voices be heard.”
