Using Storify for learning
This is a new "story" to collect data about using Storify for learning, because sometimes the obvious eludes us.
- At Storify you can gather stories, quotes, pictures, videos and web pages. If you need to create your stories with pictures and videos away from your desktop, there’s a free iPad app for that.
- A short video to introduce Storify:
- Jon Mitchel tells us how he storifies (now that "storify" is a noun and a verb).
Can students use Storify for an assignment?
Sure, they can. According to Kyle David, Sorify assembles everything needed: thesis, theme, images, quotes and, most import of all verified sources. As it can be shared, it can be subjected to comment and critique (review, assessment). In addition Storify might help fight plagiarism.
You can also use Storify to organize thoughts for a paper or project. It’s a “must” as a collaborative tool for students because through the visual aspects you see what you’re thinking, before you write.
Sherry Stones is presenting the workshop: “A Flipped Classroom: Students as Curators with Storify”.
Storify will be used to demonstrate design multimodal/multimedia research-based assignments, due to its features such as Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos.
Most of the expected outcomes of the workshop can be associated to teaching and learning in general.
a) Storify has a great educational potential;
b) You can organize Storify content based on theme or topic;
c) You can easily embed Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos;
d) It helps students develop research, synthesis and presentation skills;
f) It helps students to evaluate the credibility and relevance of web sources;
g) It enables teachers to set assignments and rubric;
h) You can embed a Storify page into a Blog;
i) Other types of Open Access Content are great for embedding on Storify, such as: Xtranormal, Goanimate, Animoto animations; Infographics and Flicker images; Google Docs; Vimeo, Big Think, and Academic Earth videos; Webcomics; Prezi and Google Slideshows; Learning Objects.
