What is it: Stage'D is a digital resource that allow students to create animated comics on a virtual stage for free.  Student become the director of their own stories!  You can choose up to two characters and create a dialog between them. Customize your actors with actions, costumes and backgrounds.

Stag'D is definitely in its beginning stages, but it is great tool to use in the classroom.  It definitely introduces digital storytelling on another level. There is even a place for student to put their name as the director.

How to integrate it into the classroom: There are various ways that you can integrate this into your classroom.  Thanks to the Edublogger, iLearn Technology for some of the suggestions.
  •  Re-tell a story to demonstrate comprehension
  • Illustrate historical events
  • Create commercials that persuade or inform
  • Create social stories for students to practice dialog
  • Using the visuals to help with creating descriptive narratives
  • Use the characters to introduce a new lesson
  • Use the story to come up with various conclusions
Take a look at my attempt at directing a play!.
