Gameplay revolves around digital “story cards” that represent different aspects of storytelling and character development. Along with vivid art, these cards serve as writing prompts, helping students figure out what to write next at each step of the game and overcoming the dreaded “writer‘s block.”
Each student creates and controls their own unique character. This helps them care about the story that they’re writing and builds strong, lasting motivation and engagement. Characters grow and evolve as the students play and write, just like in a real story.
Students take turns playing story cards and adding to the story. Paragraph by paragraph, they collaboratively write their own original story simply by playing the game. StoriumEdu’s simple rules motivate even the most reluctant young writers and keep the story moving forward.
StoriumEdu tracks your students’ writing speed and progress, giving you insights both into who is excelling and who needs additional attention. Teachers can monitor all student writing, provide feedback, and request revisions.
StoriumEDU is a ”Swiss army knife” that supports an impressively wide range of educational goals. You can use story cards and curricular content from our growing library, created by teachers just like you. You can also easily create your own cards to support your own unique classroom needs.
