Storify is a useful tool to quickly collate, organize, and disseminate a story, an idea or information. Users search, select and organize content from social networks then add a narrative to build stories that are easily shared on social networks.
Graduate students at the University of Hawai’i created these stories related to the TCC 2012 conference activities:

“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.
