Abstract

This paper documents the development and small-scale implementation of "Lego Storyboard", an XML and Flash-based tool for the creation and publication of web-based, multimodal stories - particularly those around sensitive and "dangerous" topics in formal schooling. Originally conceptualized as a continuation and extension of an earlier stop-motion animation tutorial, "Lego Storyboard" features customizable and dynamic palettes of background images, objects, characters and text bubbles, and may be more readily described as a resource enabling learners to create their own content than as a tool for the online "delivery" of content.
