Boo!<br />However, we can create some mock-Storify stories by using screenshots, links, etc.<br />Create a one-page “storify” of something that occurred over spring break. Use screen caps of Facebook, Twitter, the news, YouTube, anything. Paste your screen-captured and cropped photos into a word document and “curate” them appropriately. Tell the story!<br />
  16. 16. What’s The storify?<br />Who are the tellers of these stories? Is it right to call them tellers? Authors? Curators?<br />Who are the audiences?<br />How are these stories put together?<br />What is it like to experience a storify vs. reading a newspaper, watching TV news, etc.?<br />
  17. 17. Wrap-UP <br />Engrade codes are on slips I passed out.<br />
