I find it useful in my class - since we have limited iPads - to have the students pre-plan their Stories. To this end, I created a planning sheet, that can be printed as many times as needed. The sheet contains space to plan two slides.
Each plan for a slide includes space for:
- Notes (on what pictures/icons/captions are needed)
- Layout choice
- Script for narration
- Rough sketch of the slide
I find once the students have all this worked out, then the time needed to spend on the iPad is minimal and I can share it around to other students.
I hope others find this useful.
