In the past teachers were incentivized to focus on memorization for high-stakes tests. However, the new Common Core Standards focus on critical thinking. Narrable’s technology platform offers teachers a straight-forward approach to meeting Common Core standards by engaging students through storytelling.
Students log in to Narrable’s web based to individually or as a class and create stories based on what they’ve learned. Following their lesson plan, students then find visual elements like photos or illustrations and arrange them into a narrative timeline. They can use a variety of built-in tools to record their voices, narrating over the images and bringing the story to life.
This process puts into context the individual facts previously learned in class and commits them into long-term memory. Narrable engages students in a creative learning process that puts them in control while documenting an authentic interaction that can be reviewed and replayed for parents or administrators.
