Introductions  - 
 
Hi everyone! I'm Tina Photakis from Adelaide, South Australia. I'm currently teaching an amazing year 3/4 class at Cowandilla primary school and we are trialling iPads 1:1 and loving it! Global collaboration has always been a passion of mine and now my students are wanting to connect, especially after they tracked my OS trip to PBLWorld and ISTE13. Would love to connect with others so this is a fantastic community to be part of. I'm @tina_p on Twitter so feel free to connect!

Hi Tina Photakis, I am Lin-lin from Taiwan.  I teach 5th graders (age 11) in a primary school in Kaohsiung.  Hope that we can collaborate in the near future.  We are going to use i-pads in classroom sooner or later this year.  Have a great school year.  Linlin

Topic 2 - Digital Storytelling  - 
 
Last year I was introduced to Storify and I thought that I would give it a try. I chose a MasterClass that George Couros facilitated for our State IT Education Association (CEGSA) in Adelaide. I tried to tell the story using the many tweets from that day. I found Storify such an amazing tool that helps to create unique stories and to share easily.
