Storytelling Site Cowbird: In-Depth Experience on, of all Places, the Web — The Digital Shift
"Telling a brief story around a single photograph seems like such a simple idea. Add to that a sharing element and you think: another clever web platform to distract and amuse us. But there’s a lot more to Cowbird.The interface is beautiful, as one would expect from Jonathan Harris, Cowbird’s creator. The Web artist and programmer behind the 2006 Web project “We Feel Fine,” Harris thinks big. His goal with Cowbird: nothing less than to create “the world’s first library of human experience,” according to the site.While you can add audio, the focus is on the image, which floats front and center, full screen, with the accompanying story beneath in plain text. To get a feel, you’ll need to spend some time with the stories posted thus far, as the site suggests."

Cool Tools for Writing
I was looking at the latest post on Ed Tech Ideas, Part 5 of the "Cool Tools for Writing" series.  You can  see them all by clicking these links: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5.  There are several  interesting web sites to explore in each post, and you don't have to be a teacher to have fun with them.Here are my favorites:Zoo Burst"ZooBurst is a digital storytelling tool that lets anyone easily create his or her own 3D pop-up books."StoryJumper"StoryJumper is a site that gives parents, kids, and authors a fun set of intuitive tools for writing and illustrating kids stories. Our goal is to inspire anyone that's ever wanted to write a kids story to get started!

You can order your books as professionally published hardbound volumes starting from $24.95."Learn Something Every DayThere's nothing to do on this page, except to read and enjoy, and probably say, "I didn't know that!"Screen shot of http://www.learnsomethingeveryday.co.uk/#/2011/03/05Super  Sentence MachineThis is just one of the many small programs developed by Barking College which help children master different areas of the curriculum  On the web page, you can construct sentences by making choices of words.  From this link, you can download the Super Sentence Machine app to use on your own computer.  Be sure to browse through the other ages ranges and subject categories.Screen shot fromhttp://vle.barkingcollege.ac.uk/cw_testbed/resources/infant/english/super_sentence/files/start.htm

Loose-Fish - Jay Bushman - My goal is to use every conceivable method of transmitting information on the web as a vehicle for delivering story
In chap 89 of Moby-Dick, Melville describes the doctrine of “Fast-Fish and Loose-Fish,” which governs possession of whales on the high seas. A fast-fish is claimed, or fastened to a ship. Any fish that isn’t fastened, is up for grabs, or loose.
