A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify

A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify | Socialmedia in schools |

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.

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools | Socialmedia in schools |


"Curators sort through it, find the wheat in the chaff, and present it in a friendly manner” . I would agree with this definition however would also add that a curator would also share their perspective and perhaps alternative ( or supporting) viewpoint using the posts that they have selected.Why curate?

Curation provides another offering for your on-line audience. It also helps reduce the noise of the plethora of information on the internet. Cuation also provides a stream of fresh posts for your site or blog.

The whole article (link below) is worth the read - and this is certainly a 'future focus' area for information collection.  I use Scoopit and have seen a few Paperli pages - but the rest are new to me!

Thanks Everyone for this feedback. Just wonderful.

Robin- absolutely appreciated the feedback. I did visit all the sites to ensure that they were still in operation however missed some very important details. So thank you so much for providing the clarification needed. :))

Martin you need to do a little of what the article says - add your own perspective! I read the info and thought you had written it until I went to the link.

Hi Carey, I consider as a tool to provide interesting information and not really as a curation tool, but, maybe you're right and I should reconsider my opinion about my approach! Thank you for your feedback.
