Feb. 11: Scavenger hunt roundtable & using Storify

Today’s agenda: We’ll chat about your experiences with the Twitter Scavenger Hunt and then begin using Storify to create stories about the scavenger hunt.

  • You can even use Storify for a cover letter! (She got the internship.)

Due Tuesday: Your tweets for the Twitter Scavenger Hunt! See previous post for complete details, but here are a few reminders:

  • Twitter Scavenger Hunt is from 3:30 p.m. Thursday to 5 p.m. Monday
  • Use #SLUvLU
  • Make sure you do the eight required tweets AND respond/comment on at least five other students’ tweets

For Thursday: Check out the materials in the New news tools & apps folder

Due Thursday: Your Storify based on the scavenger hunt should be posted to your blog. (You can embed it in a post.)

A reminder: A Storify provides context for the material you bring in from Twitter. Think of the tweets as quotes for your first-person news story — you need to write original transitions and other content to help explain your “quotes.”

  • Do not stack more than three tweets together without writing a transition or other contextual material.

You need to include:

  • At least four of your own tweets
  • At least three tweets from your classmates
  • At least four tweets from LU students
  • At least three of your responses to LU students’ tweets
