Technology Review: StoryCorps

STORY CORPS is a nonprofit oral history project.
The website allows users to listen, watch, and read oral history recordings as well as record their own stories at the traveling StoryBooth. Users can search by collections, themes, initiatives and locations. Or, browse the collection. Participants can also explore collections of stories on topics such as veterans stories, September 11th stories, and love stories.
The easy-to-use app provides access to the oral history, along with tools to record their own stories.
Librarians will find this project to be a wonderful way to immerse children in oral history. Use the app to record and submit your own projects.
