There is no denying that you can make some pretty amazing things with Storyboard That. Sometimes, people forget that they can use the wonderful compositions they make with other applications! While the website is pretty darn amazing, look at what you can do with digital storytelling!
Let’s take a brief look at the export options you have for your public storyboards! When viewing your storyboard, you will see several buttons below the storyboard. These buttons allow you to go back and edit your storyboard, view as a slide show live in the browser, or export your storyboard in different ways.
This button will make a copy of the storyboard and bring you directly to the Storyboard Creator to make whatever changes you need. Copying a storyboard is particularly useful if you want to use some, but not all of the information or imagery in a new storyboard. This is like the "Save As" options in many programs. Another helpful use for the copy storyboard button is to take one of the activities from the lesson plans, and then revise for your own purposes. Maybe on a character map you aren’t interested in their physical traits, and want to change that text to “goals”. Or you want to give students a plot diagram with no words and just pictures to remind them of the story. Copying a storyboard is a very easy way to modify for different learners without sacrificing your work!
Don’t forget that teachers with teacher accounts can make storyboard templates, too!
There are many print options available. If you haven’t tried to print before, you probably haven’t seen what we can do! There are several print layout options available to make things easy on you and your students, including lined paper options. Remember, you don’t actually have to PRINT right away, you can save your storyboard or storyboard cells into a PDF for later printing. For assistance with the print process, take a look at How to Print.
Combine digital storytelling with storyboard genius! You have the most flexibility with the various download options. This button allows you to export your storyboard or separate cells to a .png, pdf, or .ppt format. In the pop-up window, more information is provided to help you choose what is right for you:
Are your students writing a research paper on volcanoes? Creating brochures? Making menus? Doing something with a word processor? Add in some Storyboard That images! With text wrapping in word processors, it is easy to add images - either individual cells or full storyboards. After downloading your storyboard or storyboard cells (either Image Pack, High Res, or Social Media), you can treat them just like any image. Remember to follow appropriate attribution and citing procedures.
Turn your storyboard into a great presentation. The PowerPoint button downloads your storyboard cells onto different slides of a PowerPoint presentation. The presentation download is compatible with both Google Slides and Keynote. Plus, any image attributions from Photos for Class integration will appear on a slide at the end of your presentation.
The presentation will be on a default Storyboard That design layout, but you can change the design or theme as you like. The download automatically puts the storyboard cell on the left, the description text on the right, and the title box text in the title space of the slide. The title of the entire slide show will be the title of the storyboard. Of course, the file is editable, so make it your own! Learn more from the How to Present article.
There are plenty of bloggers out there who could use a bit of Storyboard That character (or characters)! We would love to help you make your blogs even more fun (and educational/instructional… but mostly more fun!) You can embed your storyboard onto your website very easily by slapping in the HTML snippet you get after clicking "Embed". Storyboard That does not share your beautiful creations with the world unless you want us to! So, in order for you to be able to embed your storyboard, you need to make the storyboard public first by clicking on "Storyboard Privacy". Check out our Copyright FAQ Section if you have use questions!
So, anywhere you would use an image, consider Storyboard That! Make charts, posters, cards, webpages, worksheets, game boards, and whatever else for your classroom. Flex those creative muscles with storyboarding!
