Storybird is an extremely engaging collaborative storywriting website that embodies three ideas – creating, reading, and sharing. It is also a collaborative storytelling tool that allows students to focus more on the content of their writing rather than drawing pictures. Students are provided with the pictures - free collections of art. They just have to add the words to write stories. Once the art is chosen, students are able to build their story by dragging and dropping pictures and creating/writing a story to match the pictures chosen. Stories can enclose a variety of genders – poetry, mysteries, tales, among others.
