Over the years I have used storyboarding in my 7th grade social studies class as a way for students to demonstrate their learning. For example, in the Jamestown Settlement unit, students research facts and then compare their findings to the 1995 Disney film, Pocahontas. Their challenge is to storyboard a scene as historically accurate, and then “pitch it”—or sell their scene—to the class. This is all based on something known as the “Pixar Pitch”, which is how the famed digital cartoon studio storyboards.

First Then Boards are a visual support system that allows young children or children with language delays to understand routines, expectations, and reward systems in more accessible ways. By providing a visual support along with language and social interaction, students are able to participate more independently and with less frustration in everyday activities. The simple layout of two spaces allows for the caregiver to update the board frequently and adjust depending on the student’s needs. Often a binder or pocket folder with Velcro to hold many cards makes the system compact and usable throughout the routine.

We give and get instructions all of the time. Whether it is a tutorial on a website, a recipe for dinner, or directions to the post office, instructions are all around us. We go through various processes too, as do many natural phenomena. Life cycles, routines, photosynthesis, digestion - processes are everywhere! Instructions and processes are so much more easily understood when accompanied by visuals. When we storyboard a process or create a sequential diagram, we can focus on discrete steps, cause and effect, and sequence.

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.

We put stuff in order all the time. Chronological order, numerical order, alphabetical order. We use order of steps for driving directions, recipes, processes and routines. Sometimes performing a task using the correct order of steps is crucial to success. Sequencing aids us in carrying out tasks, but also in organization of information.
