Just over two years ago, Google used the Super Bowl to highlight a very cool tool they had created called Search Story that used their Search feature to, well . . . tell a story. I spent a few minutes sharing how you might be able to use Search Story to help kids summarize all sorts of information and to discuss historical people, events, and ideas. I thought about how you could use it to create hook activities or have kids create end of unit type products.
The bad news? Google is no longer supporting Search Story.
But . . . they’ve created a replacement. Google’s latest fun tool called Story Builder is up and running.
