Signed Stories App Collaboration with Keith Wann, Peter Cook and ITV

I saw a post by Keith Wann on FaceBook this morning announcing a Signed Stories app for children. I sat down tonight and took a look. It was listed in the ITunes store, and free to download. There are several free stories, as well as some that can be purchased. They also provide a list of stories to come.

Before we begin we are given a choice of BSL (British Sign Language) or ASL (American Sign Language). Once downloaded, we are given a free story to download, which goes into our "bookshelf". At the bottom of our screen we are given choices, "bookshelf" "store" "A-Z dictionary" and "settings".

This FABULOUS app has audio, captions, signs and illustrated cartoon videos! LOVE THIS! I experienced "Three Billy Goats Gruff" as never before! 

This wonderful app is a collaboration with ITV, Keith Wann and Peter Cook. Read more about it here: http://www.appsplayground.com/apps/2012/10/16/itvs-signed-stories-app-has-sign-language-stories-for-kids/

Here is an example they uploaded onto Youtube to check out.
