About

Zooburst - Read, Share and Make pop up books!

I really love making pop up cars with my students so I thought Zooburst would be a great site to check out. It is currently in "alpha" but I got an invite, maybe you can too!


You can upload photos, search photos and easily create pop up books with dialogue. Wonderful for creating stories or teaching vocabulary. Works fine and I created my "Simpson's" book in about 15 minutes (I already had the photos). No glitches and very intuitive. Not too many choices available for templates / scenes at the moment but that's probably for the better.

What do you think about this? A good concept? I must say, I had fun making the book and think that it would work best if students were making their own books and then sharing them. I hope Zooburst will develop this feature for teachers - signing up students and creating a private community for their books (much like Storybird does).

Hope you enjoyed my presentation and get Zoobursting!

I signed up on May 16th, and don't remember needing an invite... in fact, I thought I could send out invites! Just checked, and you don't need an invite- but you do need to fill out a form.

Ah, it has changed a bit. It is going into beta, and you might not get an account right away? I don't know, I'd give it a try, my account was activated within minutes.

Anyway, here is my little book... just one page : ) Remember to click on the ! sign for text (took me awhile to figure that one out)


BTW, David, they do have plans to make educator accounts- info in FAQ

Like you, I wasn't positive on how to use the program with students beyond just having fun. I have a love for pop-up books and at one time had hundreds of them.... : )

Ellen,

Now I remember you telling us about Zooburst (vaguely). You don't really need a direct invite but you have to fill in the form and I had to wait a few days for a response....

About the FAQ page - I don't know. I think it is in "build" mode. Like the webcam mode which I've had difficulty with. Let's see.
