Using Shadow Puppet (similar to Photostory on Windows side) for storytelling invites the use of imagery and narrative in formative and informative ways in teaching, training, and learning. This app lets students put those iPads and smartphones to work collecting pictures, practicing narration, composing self-introductions in an online or face-to-face course, etc.

It is a fun app with lots of practical uses that are easy to create. As you become more comfortable with it, you can also start a story using Shadow Puppet and then add another sound track using iMovie or some other video editing applications.

Here’s a shadow puppet sample.
