Online Writing Sites - for student writing but students can also read the stories published by others.
Not online, a download for Windows computers running 8.1 or higher Book Creator is a great way to create multi-media books. Currently a free download. Also an app.
The Story Starters page has lots of video and picture prompts for writing and discussions.
Many of the written language motivators can be used to stimulate oral language as well.
Some online story-writing sites and apps have a record function so students can tell their story orally eg Little Bird Tales and Book Creator.
iPad and tablet whiteboard apps have a record function and Educreations is also available in a web page version. PixiClip is another online whiteboard with a record function.
