Last Monday a group of our students attended an excursion in our city. They visited the Immigration Museum and explored many exhibitions and wandered the city noting historical changes.
The experience was well documented by the Tweeting teachers as well as the Museum Educators (@MvTeachers) . Anyone watching from afar was well informed and connected to what was happening throughout the day.
The Tweets were then curated into a Storify – capturing a timeline of the events and enhanced by the ability to add relevant weblinks.
Back at school, the Storify became a journal of the days events, shared on the class blogs. It was also used to enable a de-brief of the day before the students began unpacking the ideas they explored. It can be edited to show the follow up and further aspects of the learning.
A tool that I once saw from one light only (capturing a series of Tweets), I now see with a broader lens.
I wonder how else it might enhance our learning?
