With Storyfab, all the world’s a stage. Usingthis augmented reality (AR) app, students can transform their classroom, schoolyard, or backyard into a movie set. They can customize virtual actors, enhance their set with props, and add special effects. They can then shoot the scenes, adding dialogue if they wish. Students become the producer, director, writer, and costume designer, and can even join the cast as an actor. Once they’ve created their movie, students can save the video to their camera roll and share it with friends on social media. Created by Spooklight SA for iOS, the app can be downloaded free of charge from the iTunes App Store.
