Storytelling Project

This is a fun way of collaborating in a story. Look at the voicethread below and then go to the site. Register if you haven't already done so. You simply need an email address for this and then you can add your ideas, telling the next step in the story. You can do this by writing or by speaking. So, let's see what happens:
1. Look at the background and situation. Think of ideas you can add and be careful with the tenses you use
2. Think about the characters: what did they do before the story started? Why? What will they do next? Who with? Why? etc. and be careful with the narrative tenses here too.



See how much fun elearning can be!
