would like to use
Storybird for math
because it allows
them to be
organized and have
their content ready
to present. It is also
an effective way to
present statistics
and probability in a
fun story.

For copyright and

students need to
use Blooms

level remerging.
The student needs
to be able to recall
or remember the
information
presented. Some
things that are
associated with
this level are:
define, duplicate,
list, memorize,

2. Reading for

3. Writing and
Composition

Students are
supposed to use
technology tools
to enhance
learning, increase
productivity, and
promote
creativity.
Storybird helps
promote
creativity
because the
students need to
write their own
story.

Storybird is very
much a student
use activity.
Students can
choose a theme
of their story by
looking at the
pictures on
Storybird and
create a story
depending on
their ability.

Students need to be
constructivism when
using Storybird and
researching the
pictures. They need
to be able to view
the picture and
either construct
knowledge through
experiences or they
need to discard the
picture as irrelevant
to their story.

and Reasoning

Social Studies
1. History

A standard for
teachers is
teachers
facilitate
learning for
their students.
Using Storybird
to tell a story
about a
historical event
or historical
person would
give the
students
knowledge on
the content.

Copyright and Fair


use content is a
Direct instruction
when the teacher
is breaking down
the parts and
explaining in
detail. For
Copyright and Fair
use you must use
direct instruction
because it is a very
confusing topic.

When doing
research
students need to
know and
understand the
copyright and
fair use law
otherwise there
will be a negative
punishment.
Teachers also
could use
positive
reinforcement if
students use the
copyright and
fair use correctly.

Storybird would
be a fun tool to
use in a flipped
classroom. The
teacher could
use it to teach
the students
about a topic in
physical science
and then when
the students and
teacher meets
they can apply
what they
learned from the
Storybird.

Direct instruction
and Storybird may
be hard for
students with
learning
disabilities. The
teacher could have
the student choose
the pictures and
then orally tell
them the story and
the teacher can
type it. Or the
students can work
in pairs/groups to
create the
Storybird.

Reflection: Storybird is a fun tool. I think that it would be great for students to use in the classroom. Storybird allows that students to create a story
using their imagination based off of the pictures available to them. I think the teacher needs to know Storybird well and be able to give great
directions to the students, otherwise I think some students might struggle with Storybird. The one thing I wanted to do in Storybird was use multiple
pictures from other authors but did not know how to or if you could. The content of Copyright and Fair Use is important to teach the students because
they need this as people of our society. I think students see their parents using pieces of work incorrectly so at school they need to receive the correct
rules. I think using Storybird to get the content across to the students is both fun for the students and also the teacher. This improves my TPAK
technology because I need to be familiar with Storybird and the technology. My content TPAK was lowered a little because I really had to research
copyright and fair use information so I was giving the students the correct information. My Pedagogy TPAK would vary depending on my students
ability to complete the assignment.
