Late last year I released Fold That Story to the Edmodo app store as a web application. Then earlier this year I made it more broadly available as a web application that was open to anyone. I’ve now released the iOS version that allows teachers and students to play using mobile devices.

Fold That Story is a creative writing game where students and teachers write a story one section at a time. The catch is that students can only read the last section. This means that a story can evolve and take a number of plot twists as the story progresses. The app focuses on teacher controls such as:

  • The ability for a teacher to change the display name of a student.
  • Teachers can view and edit a section at any time.
  • A profanity filter removes any nasty words.
  • Students can be made read only and controlled by the teacher.

The app can be downloaded from the App Store.
