Storify.com

I use a free web-based tool called Storify to archive information, mainly from conferences.  Storify allows you to search various types of Internet information and collates it into an interactive and embeddable web poster.  I usually use it to collect Tweets from myself and others using a hashtag # search.  There are a number of examples of such collections throughout my past blog posts, feel free to check them out.

While collecting Tweets from this year’s PETE & C, I learned that you can only collect and post 1000 Tweets to a Storify.  That is a plethora of information, but at PETE it is less than 1 day’s worth of Tweets.  So, create multiple Storifys…

 

You can locate Storify at Storify.com for a free account.

PAECT Radio: Our Twitter Journey Begins

Last Spring, a friend of mine, Michael Micco, @mrmicco, thought it would be a good idea to start an Internet radio broadcast highlighting what PAECT members are doing in their classrooms.  We did some background research and a few trial and error exercises with different platforms looking into the logistics of creating a show.

This Fall we came up with PAECT Radio, hosted on BlogTalkRadio.  Our show page can be found here, along with archives of our past episodes.

Last night’s broadcast was our first excursion with using Twitter Hashtags to communicate with our listeners.  We use #paectradio, obviously, as the hashtag.  We did not have many responses for our first attempt, but we also gave short notice about the broadcast.

Here is the Storify from our first endeavor:
