A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify

A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

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.

 

Important ideas:

 

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.

Using Storify for learning

Storify is now a noun and a verb.

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. 

You can use as a blog, to accomplish your assignments, and to organize thoughts for a paper or project. Above all collaborate and don't forget to share a lot.
