This is a work in progress so please check back if you cannot find what you are looking for - better still, create and share some of your own stories!

You can view the contents of the wiki as a guest but you have to be a member to edit/add resources. To request membership, click the 'Join this Wiki' link at the top of the left-hand menu.

NB - If the story you are uploading is student-created, please add details of lesson context, student age/level etc.


Why another wiki?

To highlight some of the ever-increasing number of free, creative Web 2.0 storytelling tools available to students and educators and to encourage their use in the languages classroom.

Take a look at how pupils and teachers are using the applications and be inspired to try them for yourself!

It's great to share!

Language teachers - if you or your pupils have created a digital story in French, Spanish, German or Italian using any of the applications below, and you have permission to share it, please feel free to add it at the top of the table on the relevant page on the wiki, embedding where possible or inserting a link to the story. Together, we can build a great archive of ideas and celebrate the creativity of language teachers and their students!

If you are not sure how to upload, or you cannot see any pages for the Web 2.0 tool you have used, please email me the link to your story rubiales62@hotmail.co.uk or tweet it to me @rubiales62 and I'll add it for you.



Finding the Stories

Navigate the wiki using the left-hand menu to find or add some great examples of digital storytelling using Storyjumper Zooburst, Little Bird Tales, ToonDoo, GoAnimate , DomoAnimate, Voicethread , My eBook and Kerpoof for starters!

What about Storybird?

Thanks to Fiona Joyce, Storybird, another fantastic storytelling application, has its own dedicated wiki for sharing stories written in languages other than English at MFL-Storybirds

An excellent idea, Fiona's site has some great stories already, welcomes contributions in many languages and is the inspiration behind this wikispace for collating digital tales in other formats!
