Storify is likely the most versatile tool to collect disparate web content that you can weave in a stand alone collection.
You can easily log into storify with your twitter login.
The storify process includes using the tools on the right to find content from many social media services, or directly if you know the URL of the item you wish include. Once added to the vertical timeline on the left, you can re-arrange the order, and you can add text commentary or explanation wrapped around any item.
Some examples from UDG Agora include:
- #UdGAgora Week 2 Hangout include not only the video archive, but tweets sent during the hangout, and other related links.
- Visual Facilitation at the #UdGAgora
- The Value of Memes and Gifs in Engaged, Mobile Learing with #UdGAgora
- Value of Open Resources?
Storify can be a tool that students use to synthesize information and media they find online, to make their own portfolios (best work), or to create collections of references.
Some more ideas and examples worth considering:
- In his phonar open photography course Jonathan Worth asks his students to live tweet their notes, ideas as they listen to a podcast in class. He assembles them in near real time onto a single storify (example) and then asks his students to use that collection as a basis to create their own storify summaries of the most important parts they heard (student example)
- Using Storify: An Example, and An Assignment is both a demonstration of Storify and an assignment in which students are going to be using Storify. (English 318: Writing in Digital Environments: University of South Carolina Upstate)
