Using Atavist in the Classroom
I was looking for interesting ways to do a class introduction when I came across Atavist. Atavist is a publishing and storytelling resource. It can be used to address aspects of both the writing and speaking & the listening common core standards. You can add several features to your Atavist project including text, pictures, videos, Twitter posts, and sidebars. There are also more creative options. You can combine two pictures to compare to each other. The program provides a sliding bar on the image for comparing the two images. Atavist can be a great resource for students to create stories or for teachers to use as an introduction tool. It’s definitely worth checking out. Here is a quick introduction I made for my students. Just click on the link and move through the story by clicking in the bottom right corner to progress through the story. Getting to know you.
