Posted: March 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

for last week’s lesson, we had a discussion about Personalized Learning. the discussion was carried out within a chat session according to our bundle group. this discussion was meant to help us to understand more about Personalized Learning and hear other opinions from our friend regarding the particular topic.


I had chosen the web based tools from

this is what the web actually looks like

ok… basically, storybird is “collaborative storytelling for family and friends.”

Storybird helps you create a tale with an intuitive book-like interface and a whimsical selection of artwork. (We’re not talking stick-figures here. These are high-quality images from some of the most talented “undiscovered” children’s illustrators today

so, why did i choose this particular tool?

  • it does not require any sign up!!
  • the images and items in the storybird, were cool! colourful and attractive!
  • children love story! so we should use it as a tool to attract them
  • i can create my own version of story using the templates given!so, why did i choose this particular tool?

  1. Salam and hye..

    One of the part of your lesson plan that I like the most is, “Teacher lets pupils to choose one friend and describe their friend & write them on the board.” Why? Because we can manipulated it to be either reading, writing, listening or speaking. Overall, good job.
