    Hi Tim, I was intrigued by your title. What is Storify? I opened it up and I see your slideshow, which is very cool. Please excuse my ignorance of Storify and share a bit… Is it an easy tool for creating slideshows? Google Presentation is so easy, but I’d like to know more about your tool…

    I love how people at conferences are now tweeting out the entire time to a hashtag specifically for the conference. I’m in Coetail course 5, but I haven’t attended a conference in ages. I’m excited to use Twitter in this fashion. It’s just amazing how a group of educators can work together to create a giant resource through a hashtag! I’m dazzled.

    Cheers,
    Britt

    Hi Britt. Sorry it took so long to respond. Storify is web application that allows you to pull content from lots of different places (FB, Twitter, Pinterest are just a couple). You then may embed the finished product into a blog/site. I like it very much – specifically if I am sharing with other educators – plus it retains a visual elements. Try it out…it’s very friendly.

    I agree – I feel like I never miss a conference now. And the hashtags are so helpful in following the ebb and flow of colleague thoughts and takeaways.
