Storytelling is intricately linked to images and sound - whether in one's mind or visually shared. Images show so much more than words sometimes, capturing feelings, moods, nuances of shade and shadow. As such, it is often when asking students to create a digital artifact or continue writing their blogs, that teachers need to provide them with support with visuals.
Perhaps some may know that I curate images and design here . This post is a brief reminder of some sites which students could use for their digital work.
