More Digital Story Telling in 3D!

Since we were just talking about digital story telling in class I thought this site sounded pretty cool. I have always been a huge fan of pop up books. I love the way they allow for the reader to interact with the story in a low tech, artistic way. I was checking out the http://www.freetech4teachers.com/ and found this link to Zooburst.  It "is a digital storytelling tool that is designed to let anyone easily create their own customized 3D pop-up books. Click on some of the pictures below to check out books created by members of the ZooBurst community."  It was fun to look at the books that members created.  To set up my own account I have to wait for approval by the site.  They accept new members on a rolling basis, so I'll keep you posted when I hear more.  There is also a blog that gives more information about zooburst.  I hope I'm approved!! 


  1. I look forward to your updates. This sounds like a fun and creative way to entice reluctant readers. I'm wondering with the account approval process if this would be a viable tool for school/student access? Thanks for the information.

  2. I read more after I posted this and it sounds like it is something that is still being developed and so they're looking for BETA testers to help develop it. Don't think they'll approve me since I'm not a BETA tester and really only vaguely know what that is...oh well. WE'll just have to wait and see.
