'Story Stage' intrigues Chris Drage with its creativity, elan and innovative multi-mouse collaboration
Story Stage is a series of puppet-based literacy resources encouraging groups or pairs of children to work together around a computer to create their own imaginative retelling of traditional stories.
As a teacher, few software titles from large, established book publishers enthuse me. Most tend to be electronic text books with limited opportunities for any creative interaction by the student other than via assessments, quizzes and interactive demonstrations. However, with Story Stage I have had to eat those words.
