Building A Better Mouse: The Story Of The Electronic Imagineers Who Designed Epcot 

https://www.amazon.com/Building-Better-Mouse-Electronic-Imagineers/dp/0972977759

How about this one: you climb aboard a BART subway train. It pulls out of the station, then begins to shake as an earthquake strikes. Fires erupt, and a flood comes cascading down the tunnel, extinguishing the flames and splashing over the train. Exciting? I guess. But not completely fulfilling. Why? They forgot to tell us why we were getting on the train, where it was going, and what our mission was. The name of this attraction at Universal Studios Florida is Earthquake, so we knew what to expect when we got on. But there was no underlying story to get us involved. "

Articulate Storyline

As I said in that forum thread, the new Articulate Storyline is a wonderful tool to show the general structure of your courses. The Story View displays the overall project organization, making it very easy to identify scenes, information flow, and different relationships among pages (screens) and so on.  In addition, I can use annotated screenshots to communicate my ideas more effectively.

Popplet

Virtual mind-mapping tool that allows users to create digital mind webs by embedding content from the internet. The app features bright colors and clean design, and can nudge students along as they create their own narratives by serving as a brainstorming tool. Some use it to frame a story-[students] can map out their writing. 

http://popplet.com/

My StoryMaker 

Colorful characters (think pirates and little blue men), whimsical props and scenery and an endless number of ways to put them together. “My StoryMaker lets you scaffold what you’re doing with the app,” “For instance, if you have two characters--a witch and a genie holding an apple--you can click on the genie and say ‘give,’ and the app will write, ‘The genie gives the apple to the witch,’” “But what I love most about it is that you can actually alter the story in any way you want. You can incorporate vocabulary words and all sorts of material.” 

https://www.carnegielibrary.org/storymaker/

Sock Puppets

An homage to those endearing creatures from the pre-iPad era, this mobile app lets students record their own dialogue to be acted out by--sock puppets. Drag-and-drop scenery and a voice modifier that adapts a speaker’s tone of voice to a character make it a great tool for younger kids learning the foundation of story.

XtraNormal

In-depth animations and dozens of stage directions equip students to become mini- moviemakers by choosing everything from the accents of their actors to the number of camera angles in their films.

Storybird

Art and story entwine in Storybird’s virtual stories. Students create narratives by dragging and dropping illustrations from artists chosen by the site and writing text on the page. Select imagery either by theme (such as “forest” or “home”) or by artist. Once the story is complete, it reads as a full-screen novel.

Audio-Animatronic robot figures all started with a little bird -- a mechanical bird that Walt Disney purchased in the 1950s, while on vacation in Europe. That little mechanical bird became the inspiration for what is seen around the World today in the Disney Theme Parks.
