I am delighted to report that now you can create digital stories on your iPad! Storify gives you the ability to drag media from networks like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google onto your own Storify blog with the touch of a finger. Storify is a digital storytelling tool which allows users to create a story using social media. Students can showcase their own social networking tweets and posts all on one page, or create stories using key points from public tweets and posts. As you thread elements from all over the Web into a story, you can type in your own comments to voice your opinions. You can even tweet from within the Storify application to participate in the conversation. Combining elements from these different sites makes for an informative, innovative story. As long as your iTunes is updated, you are ready to begin blogging on your iPad!
Once you publish your story, you can embed it in ePortfolio to show off your new digital story. To get the application on your iPad, search for “Storify” in the app store, install the application, and begin creating digital stories by browsing through social media posts. Digital storytelling is now at your fingertips- so reach out and touch social media to create something fascinating! Click here to download Storify for the iPad from the App Store!
