“To create a story one needs an inspiration,” says Helen. “A very inspiring keynote by Dr. Kim yesterday made me think and I will be thinking about his presentation for a while.” “Storify is a great tool to quickly collate, organize, and disseminate a story, an idea or information.”

Helen continues, “Storify may be a good tool to use for a quick reflection after a field trip, a discussion, or a unit. It helps to gather and outline one’s thoughts before writing a paper or a blog.”

“I was just thinking, if Twitter is micro-blogging, then could Storify be micro-journalism?” Indeed.

  1. Thanks for linking to all of these Storify stories in one place! I haven’t used this tool before, but it looks like something worth trying out. I like Scoop.it (http://www.scoop.it/t/academic-blogging) to create my own collections and follow the collections of others. Curation tools make it a little easier for us to gather and share the resources we find valuable – could be helpful to set up an account for a specific course or program.
