Today’s tech tip: check out storify

Need an easy way to pull together posts on different social media platforms? Try using storify. We used it recently to pull together tweets for our #pctelatalk (occurring the 3rd Monday of each month at 8pm).

This also offers your students an interesting way to organize ways to make meaning for different texts. It is pretty easy to make an account and then start dragging and dropping different posts into your “story.”

If you have time this summer, play around with this and see if you can incorporate it into an assignment. Our school is trying to document images of a building that will soon be demolished, and they’ve been able to compile images from Instagram, twitter, and facebook.  It has allowed the community to share on a variety of platforms, which has been interesting to see.
