EdTech Tool Uses:FoldingStory is a group storytelling game. It is based on the old paper-based game in which players write one line of a story, fold the paper, and pass it to the next person, with the end result of a collaboratively authored story. The FoldingStory menu allows you to 'Create' (write the first line of a new story), 'Add' (add a line to a current story) or 'Read' (read all the finished stories). Users are restricted to 180 characters and one line per story, and they have four minutes to submit it from when they start. Users can then track the development and progress of the stories that they have contributed to via the FoldingStory dashboard. Users can also 'follow' other users (keep track of that user’s folds) and vote on other users folds/stories. Note: all stories are publicly accessible on the FoldingStory site.
