Storify has potential for so many uses in the classroom, including:
  1. Curating class discussions
  2. Social storytelling about world events as they happen
  3. Collecting and sharing diverse perspectives on polarizing topics

  5. Creating a multimedia book report that connects readers with the author and setting
  6. Blogging, of course!
How would you use Storify?
