It was a lively discussion. My take is that we need to use the term in as inclusive a way as possible as many simulation games can be contextualized in ways that build "real world" skills. Whatever "real world really means anymore :-)

These were just a few highlights. If I missed something you thought was important let me know I can go back and add tweets. I wanted to practice using storify.

Thank you for the Storify :)

I tried using it during a conference (AAAL) this spring, but I found I was quicker with just plain twitter. I also found that the app crashed on iPad...a lot (and unless I exited the app in regular intervals to save my progress, my work was lost upon each crash) ! What has been you experience

AK,
The way I used it was to load the #hashtag right after the chat session. Then I went through and picked out the tweets that I felt gave a sense of the overall chat. The other method I saw was to favorite tweets as the chat went along and then load the favorites into storify.

These are some really smart strategies for quickly putting tweets into Storify. I love the results, and thank you for finding a way to capture some of the best of our real-time activities! How awesome are you?

I haven't tried Storify in well over a year, and it looks as though it has come a long way (I get the emails about the fresh iterations). I think it's a wonderful tool. I'm sorry to hear the app crashes. Hopefully that's receiving urgent attention from the developers.

I appreciated Colin Simpson's question about the difference between epistemic games and sims. What do you think? I think a sim is a games platform, while an epistemic game is an example of a genre.

Beth,
On Storify, I happened to see this example listed as a related story. It thought it really demonstrated storify's capability.

GAMIFYING THE CLASSROOM
This story addresses the pedagogical methods for using interactive learning objects and games in the classroom. These activities, which can be assigned in face-to-face or online classrooms, can increase the rigor of higher-ed courses.

Hi Chris:

You happened to have posted my Storify on "Gamifying the Classroom" in this forum. ;)

Thanks for the free promo, lol.

I created the Storify page for my Workshop presentation at the Colorado Learning and Teaching with Technology (COLTT) conference on August 2, 2012. My students also use Storify for project-based learning assignments (in that they produce a Storify project every week for in-class presentations in my English Comp II courses). Here is my COLTT Conference Presentation:

"A Flipped Classroom: Students as Curators with Storify" by Sherry Jones

I'm glad more people are becoming aware of Storify and its potential, and I hope to see more people share their gaming lesson plans via this medium.
