I wanted to tell you about Storyboardthat, an option that supports EXPRESSION AND COMMUNICATION in the UDL principle of ACTION & EXPRESSION
Whoops. I think I made myself pregnant. Oh well.Why would I choose this app? I'm not tech savvy but I immediately picked this up. Such an easy tool to use! This means that my coworkers, the LEARNERS of my training, will most likely also get the hang of it with little support.Also, it's free! Unless you want fun frills like eyeglasses, in which case this will cost you $8-$10/month.
How would I use it? Probably in an activity that FOSTERS COLLABORATION & COMMUNITY in the UDL principle of ENGAGEMENT. I'm not sure that there's room in a government training for this kind of thing, but it would be a great icebreaker at a large training. You know, during the boring intro when no one is paying attention? Everyone could be busy creating a storyboard of how they are feeling about the coming day, and then share with their table mates.
