StoryPatch is a $5 iPad application designed to help students create stories. It looks very similar to StoryKit, which is a free iOS app from the International Children’s Digital Library. Instead of simply letting users add their own photos with text and audio, however, StoryPatch appears to be loaded with different icons and digital objects which students can utilize to create their own stories. According to the StoryPatch website:
Story Patch is a beautiful new application now available for the iPad that allows your children to tell stories in a fun and intuitive way. Story Patch includes hundreds of illustrations and an easy to use interface that makes storytelling a breeze for kids. If you have a child that loves being creative, take a look around and we think you will agree that Story Patch will make a great addition to your software library.
This two minute video is a demo of StoryPatch.
Hat tip to Toby Price for sharing this app via his LiveBinder, “Apps for kids with developmental delays.”
