Storypanda - Digital Books for Kids
Description:- Storypanda is an iPad application that is designed to deliver digitized and interactive story content, alongside providing the users the ability to customize the storyline and story elements to create a custom story.

Pain Point/Need:-

  1. Digital Storytelling Creators
  2. Digital Storybooks
  3. Publishing

Platform:- iOS

Usability:- Storypanda books are specifically designed for kids to learn, they offer a wide range of potential uses for teachers as well as students. The stories are designed and created in such a way that they deliver morals and lessons to students that address making new friends, being proud of your differences, including others, etc. Teachers can use these stories or can create custom stories using the design elements to teach words, sentences, story structure, grammar and much more to the students. 

As an activity, the Storypanda team worked with a kindergarten class to create Father’s Day stories with kids putting in their personalized messages for their Dads. Additionally, the team invited an author to read his book off the iPad to a group of kindergarteners. The class learned about geography and the world's landmarks as the author guided them through the story.

Walk-Through:- Storypanda is a mobile publishing platform that publishes interactive kids books on the iPad. The books are unique because kids, students, teachers and even parents can read as well as create their own version of the stories and can learn and teach at the same time. To start, you need to download the iPad application of Storypanda from the iTunes store and as soon as you download it, you are ready to use it, as it features one free story to begin with. The user can download additional stories as and when required. The stories are made interactive with the help of animations, motion elements, sounds and motion sensitive environment responses and these elements make these stories very engaging and fun to go through.

There is a ‘Create’ feature for every book available in your virtual bookshelf on your iPad that allows you to create your own version of the story by swapping different characters, props, backgrounds and even text. These custom versions of the stories can even be shared with other Storypanda users.
The Storypanda story engine keeps track of the choices and selections made by the user, while progressing through the story to keep the realistic element in the picture and thereby the story rolls out on the basis of the user’s choice.

Prices:-

  • iPad App (With one free story book) - Free
  • Additional Books - Free - $2.99

Our Review:- The application is very neatly built and all the stories are very interactive and engaging. The designing team at Storypanda has done a fabulous job in designing the stories and laying down the animations and interactive elements. The tool is very much suited for teaching kindergarteners, as the stories are short, teach lessons, and keep students engaged.

The content has been developed as per the lesson plans with the help of  teachers, for them to use the same along with their additional creations in the classroom.

‘Create your own story’ and the interactive and animated environment base for stories are some of the features that stand out among the rest for Storypanda books. We hope to see Storypanda on Android and other devices as well.
