The Learning Stories project is a web-based teaching tool that really supports the creative learning process. It lets learners create mind maps using any media format, to easily link concepts, form new ideas and reach more innovative conclusions.
The portfolio interface allows learners to capture learning processes live, like writing a poem or conducting a scientific experiment. Material can be uploaded in any file format, enabling writing, drawing, images, video and audio recordings to be added, which can be moved around, reiterated and linked together. Learners and groups of learners can comment on work and zoom in on sections and collaboration between teachers and learners, and between learners and their peers is easy.
Learning Stories is a joint development project between Digital Assess, the University of Limerick and Goldsmiths, University of London.
