Storyboard That: Encouraging Creativity and Innovative Designs

It is a very authentic ​tool that promotes critical thinking, communication, and creativity​. It fosters​ innovation in designing and empower​s​ students in the learning process. Students take control of how they show what they have learned and can now do with the material, in their own personal way. Each of these opportunities help to promote the integration of the new ISTE ​Student Standards.
