GREAT STUFF ON STORIFY #mhcurr

Recent seminar well portrayed on STORIFY - storyline holds together well and grabs attention - loads of useful links - pics add drama and human interest - tweets contribute massive sense of 'here and now' - no better example of value of stories in teaching and learning and applicability of apps such as STORIFY in enabling this. Mustn't forget to credit much much hard work from usual suspects in putting this together so quickly and professionally. THANK YOU

CREATIVE TWEETS

Blog
Hey Jill.
Just read Irene Mckintosh blog on creative tweeting. She has encouraged people to try and 'tweet' a work of fiction (limited edition obviously!)- I think this is a wonderful idea - and taking it further - we could tweet a rolling creative narrative - with people adding tweets that develop the story further - what do you and colleagues at the current seminar think?
