  118. 118. CHAPTER 9: STORIFY 117 WHAT IS STORIFY? Storify is a social media tool that lets users create stories or timelines from a variety of social media resources like Facebook and Twitter, as well as other web resources. Users can use it to pull together information on whatever they want, and can customise it. Users also can share the story on the site with friends on those social media sites. (Source: http://libroediting.com/2013/11/27/what-is-storify-and-how-do-i-use- it/). USING STORIFY IN THE CLASSROOM The following are some ways to use Storify in the classroom: 1. Compile a story about a recent event or phenomenon. Want to help students engage with the world around them? You might assign them to craft a story from a certain point of view (e.g., to create a story from a senator’s perspective about the ongoing budget crisis) or ask students to pick out tweets, pictures, and videos that cover a variety of perspectives. Chapter 9 STORIFY
  119. 119. 118 CHAPTER 9: STORIFY 2. Literature Class: Create a multimedia “book report” If students are reading a non-fiction book, they can comb the web for YouTube videos, links, pictures and more related to the subject matter. If students are reading a novel, they might choose to create a Storify story on the author’s biography or about the time period in which the novel is set. 3. History: “Reenact” a Historical Narrative Teaching students about the Civil Rights movement, the French Revolution, or the War of 1812? Have students create a Storify narrative that focuses on one aspect of the lesson. For example, a one student might choose to create a story about art at the time of the French Revolution, using Flickr images and historical websites to flesh out a narrative of the neo-classical art movement. 4. Science: Put together photos, videos, and other information about a scientific concept. Use Storify to chronicle a scientific phenomenon or discovery, or have students collect photos from a particular type of ecosystem. 5. Add a public speaking component! Encourage students to present their Storify stories to the class. If you have assigned students a current events story, students could even use their stories in the context of a debate – have two students create stories about opposing viewpoints, and use them to back up their respective arguments.

Learnist is a learning board for the digital age. The web application itself describes a “learn board” as a “set of learnings organized as a series of steps for people to learn.” Users can also look at a learning board as a container for any content that helps them understand things they are interested in. On the web, there is a glut of content that can add to education (http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-use-learnist-to-effectively- organize-your-learning-teaching/). Chapter 10 Learnist
  135. 135. 134 CHAPTER 10: LEARNIST USING LEARNIST IN THE CLASSROOM The following are how an educator can use “Learnist” effectively: 1. Collect and Share Resources In Learnist, you can organize resources through learn boards. Create a board to share your knowledge and show your expertise. Learnist allows you to add resources from anywhere on the web. Post relevant resources to your learn board and add a description. Through the search toolbar, you can access many learn boards relevant to your lesson. You can suggest resources to the board, re-add resources to your board and also add tags to it. There are many options to like, comment, share and follow the boards if you find them interesting. Once you have collected resources for your lesson and added them to your board, you can easily provide students a better learning environment in the classroom as well as at home. 2. Collaborate While creating the board, you can add your colleagues or administrators or others as collaborators to it. By this, collaborators observe what students are learning and are able to suggest related learning resources for your learn-board. You can also observe the other boards as a collaborator and can help them provide good resources. Exchange of information leads to better understanding and greater exposure.
  136. 136. CHAPTER 10: LEARNIST 135 3. Make your lesson interesting: Based on present learning approaches, students find difficulty with the traditional classroom environment. If you still make them confined to their chairs and listen to your lectures, they will lose interest. Learnist provides you with a beautiful platform to deliver your lecture. You can engage your students with images, videos and songs relevant to your lesson content. Students pay more attention if you use technological approaches like multimedia. 4. Keep students up to date: If a student is absent, he may surely miss the valuable lesson topic. But Learnist allows you to help those students also by sending out emails and tweets containing lecture resources to them. 5. Encourage Group activities: Learnist helps students to finish their projects with the help of other group members. A student can surely understand his responsibility in a group and thus collaborate with others effectively. They can create and manage their boards together as a team. 6. Save your precious time and effort: There are many users adding resources continuously, educators can take this as an advantage to collect best resources for their lesson content. It saves your precious research time and help you make a lesson effective. On the top of the site, you can find numerous categories like “art & design”, “science”, “education” and much more. You can filter your
  137. 137. 136 CHAPTER 10: LEARNIST search results through “featured”, “popular” and “new”. Learnist makes a class your classroom interactive and real life learning environment. (Source: http://edtechreview.in/news/481-amazing-ways-educators-are-using- learnist)
