Who is Storypal?

Storypal is a platform that connects classrooms around the world. 

Why We Do What We Do

We believe that everyone has a story to tell...we like stories as a species, and they help us connect with one another. 

This need to share and connect is the root of why Storypal exists.

I met Heehwa Choi, the co-founder of Storypal in coffee shop on a rainy afternoon in South Korea. We started chatting about our backgrounds, experiences, and differences. As our friendship grew, we collaborated on several projects which led us to become founders of Storypal.  

 We want to recreate that moment in the coffee shop for students all over the world. 

What We Do

We have been creating a platform that supports the telling of stories and the collaboration of an international community of educators and learners.

 Users are able to collaborate on projects, share their creative work, and find pen pals. 

Funds /Where We Need Help 

We will be doing research for the San Francisco Unified School District. 

We are partnering with the education department of Busan, South Korea.  

Our kickstarter page is for helping us properly support ourselves and our stakeholders (students, guardians, and teachers). 

The funds will go to: 

  • further developing the Storypal website
  • developing our mobile app
  • conducting research in San Francisco at a dual immersion school

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges that come with completing this project are for the most part on the research end of this. The Storypal team is made up of four members. We all have our unique skill sets, but doing research is not anyone's specialty. Partnering with someone who has a Phd. and is interested in ICT may be a challenge.
