A class is a private learning space on the Storybird platform that lets Educators create student accounts without email. You can also issue assignments, host discussions, and easily track and manage the activity of your students. In short, it's a place for you and your students to enjoy writing and reading stories.
How many students can I add to my class?
As many as you want! There's no limit to the number of students you can enrol, or the number of classes you can have.
Can I add students with existing Storybird accounts to my class?
Yes. Students with existing Storybird student accounts can be given your 'class code' in order to join your class. Keep in mind that students can only be in one class at a time.
To "create a class", toggle the pull-down menu on the right side of your class dashboard and select "Add a class". C'est tout.
How do my students publish stories into our class?
Student stories are automatically published into your class library as they are completed. And, if you've issued an assignment, stories will also pool into assignment-specific sub-libraries.
How will my students collaborate or comment on other students' stories?
Once you've added students to your class, Storybird creates a "class graph" that knows who's connected to who. When your students want to collaborate, they'll have a class list of collaborators from which to choose. They'll also see each others' work in your class library and through search, so they can easily find stories and comment on them.
How do other teachers use my account?
For now (and if possible), give them your log in credentials and share your account. Soon, we'll have administrator/user privileges to manage multiple teachers from one account.
How can I share my class with parents?
Have them log in to their child's account. They'll be able to read their child's stories and any other stories from your class library.
