So here are a number of apps that provide the tools for students to participate in the long and rich history of storytelling. Just because it is in a digital format does not make it any less rich to either the audience or within the medium.
Sock Puppets lets you add Puppets, props, scenery, and backgrounds and start creating. Hit the record button and the puppets automatically lip-synch to your voice. Switch backgrounds to take your puppets to different places, move the puppets, props and scenery to animate them while recording. Cartoon and photo realistic puppets are included.
Doodlecast is a drawing app that records your voice as you draw. Kids can choose from prompts or start a drawing from scratch. The app records the drawing process along with audio to create videos up to three minutes long. The videos are as fun to watch as they are to create.
