#ISTE13 Six Word Story Project

As I'm reading through all the ISTE13 recaps, I started thinking about how it might be cool to create a six word story about my ISTE13 experience.  As I thought about what mine might entail, I wondered what others might look like.  And then it hit me.  We should make a collaborative video of six word stories all put together into an ISTE13 compilation!

So, here is the deal.  The more people we get to add to this, the more fun it will be.  Spread the word.  I first heard about the idea of a six word story from Dean Shareski (@shareski).  And I think it is a great project for any teacher to use in their classroom.  So, this will be good practice for you.  :)

Tell the story of your ISTE13 experience with one image and just six words.  It can be an image that you took at the conference, or one that someone else took that helps tell your story.  Look here for some ideas from Ben Grey's (@bengrey) wiki:

Use a photo editor (pixlr is a good free one for Chrome and Fotolr used to be pretty good on the iPad) to add the text of the story to your image.  You can publish your image to a photo sharing site like Flickr and then add it to our Google Presentation by the URL.  Or you can upload a copy of the image directly to the Google Presentation.

Add your story to the collaborative Google Presentation here:
Be sure to include your name, where you are from and twitter/g+ account info in the notes section of your slide.

I will download the slideshow and create a video out of all of the stories.  And then in two weeks we will have a Google Hangout to watch the end result.  Sound good?  :)
