Pros: The story is randomly generated and there is no time limit, so this app is all about creativity and collaboration.
Cons: The free version has limited pictures and phrases, so after a while the images repeat. Although, after using this app for several days, I have never seen the EXACT same combination of the five elements.
Use in the Classroom: I think this would be a fantastic and innovative new way to do writing prompts in the classroom. By allowing different students to work either individually or together, there could be some amazing creativity that would come from this one of a kind app. Tell a Tale could also be a fun game for students to play in a rainy day recess sitation, or as a station to go to when they have extra time. This app could be adapted so students use an app like PicCollage to create their own Tell a Tale stories.
