Storybird is an online collaborative storytelling application in open beta testing, which means for now anyone can sign up and use it for free, but at some point there may be a charge.

Storybird has a simple drag and drop interface an allows you to select some beautiful images to illustrate a story you or your students write. The story can then be posted online or e-mailed to friends and families.

Children and adults can also read stories others have written and create a reading list. These stories have an age range the author(s) assign and allows comments. The stories can also be read on an iPhone.

Their blog says that coming soon you will be able to upload images, which would be perfect for social stories, and to print out stories.

  1. Hi folks,

    Thanks for the post and the kind words about Storybird. We're particularly happy to see it in a forum such as this; teachers, students, and kids with learning disabilities were very much in mind as we designed it.

    And, just to be clear: making, sharing, and reading Storybirds will always be free. Printing and some premium services like voice will have a charge, but the base service is meant to be accessible to everyone, everywhere.

    Feel free to kick the tires and drop us a line about your experience using the service. We're always looking for input.

    Cheers, and thanks again.
