a new discovery

I'm really enjoying the class I'm currently taking online at ECU...EDTC 6070 Digital Literacy for 21st Century Classrooms. The assignment we're working on right now is developing three projects, and I've found a lot of great sources and useful information from my classmates from blogs, links on Delicious, photo sharing with Flickr, and more!
I think my favorite find thus far is a site called ZooBurst. I honestly can't remember which of my classmates posted this link to their Delicious site, but THANK YOU!! :)

ZooBurst is a site where you can make interactive 3D pop-up books! A basic teacher account is free, but if you want access to the premium features, you'll have to pay. I really love Storybird, because it's along the same line - choose art, type your story, and publish. But with ZooBurst, students can search for characters and backgrounds, so they can mix and match while they're creating their pop-up book.
I think this Web 2.0 Tool is great, and I've already made an account and had fun learning and playing.

Here's a link to the first ZooBurst book I made. It's nothing fantastic because I was trying to get used to the site and format of making a book. But it was fun, and I think you should check it out!
