Imagistory: wordless story booksPosted: July 20, 2014
Bring your child’s imagination to life with imagistory! A creative storytelling app that encourages anyone to be the storyteller, no matter what your age or language.
Designed for children aged 3 and up, the idea behind the app is simple, using wordless picture books it’s up to you and your child to use your imaginations to create a story with the pictures. The stories you create are recorded and saved so you can listen to them again later and share them with loved ones.
Imagistory provides an entirely new reading experience, not only is it very fun and easy to use, it’s also highly educational! Helping foster creativity, imagination and to develop language and early literacy skills.
The open nature of wordless picture books gives them a huge variety of potential uses, making them great tools for the class room too.
Kids have the wildest imaginations and are already natural storytellers, so help them discover this and unleash their storytelling potential.
This is a truly beautiful app which is a worthy addition to every family, pre-school and primary school device. Designed and developed in NZ this is a quality production with easy navigation and includes a parental guide to the use of wordless picture books for extending children’s vocabulary and imagination. I shared the first story with a class of six-year-olds and their teacher via Apple TV to a big screen. The children created their own dialogue for the story which we recorded and played back. The children loved hearing themselves. It’s quite a challenge making up a story and the guide with this app is very useful. The option to pause when recording enables teachers or parents to offer guidance without interfering with the children’s dialogue. Highly recommended by myself and Room 5.
