Engaging students to participate in stories from books read can be challenging. With the use of MyTalk, stories can be personalized, can include active videos, and can be printed to transition for the "interactive" platform to pure print media. One such story simply had 3 pages per student. (page1-picture of Jimjim) audio-print "This is Jimjim." (page 2 picture of Jimjim on slide) audio-print "Jimjim likes to slide." (page 3 -video of Jimjim sliding) audio-print "Jimjim is sliding." One of the beauties of this is that it is a pretty fast story to create right on the device - now that video images can be done on the fly. Definitely has possibilities, especially during holiday seasons. The story can then be easily shared with family and friends..even long distance. (sorry no files attached as student privacy issues.)
