I was dismayed a couple of months ago when I heard that Storify was ending. I’d used the service — which allowed users to collect and arrange social media and park it all on one page — for assignments in my editing classes.
Thanks to a Twitter tip from editor Gerri Berendzen, I’ve found a successor to Storify. Wakelet lets you to do much of what Storify allowed you to do and more (such as uploading your own photos). Today, I’ll try it in class for the first time with an assignment on alternative story forms.
Here are some examples of student work:
- What to Expect for the 2018 Winter Olympics
- Preview of the UNC-Duke basketball game
- Five Rivalries That Rival UNC vs. Duke
- A History of the Super Bowl Halftime Show
