From the Spring 2011 ds106 class came the idea of changing up an existing web page to tell a new story " you will be intervening in the code and design of a website of your choice to tell a story. You are not to photoshop the design of the site, but rather intervene in the actual html and CSS of the site—though you can photoshop particular images on the site. Essentially you alter the content of a web page (content, images) to make it tell a new story. Originally we recommended doing this using the Firebug extension in the ...

Find something in a foreign language and use Google Translate and laugh about how awful it is. Its pretty easy to do if you use Google Chrome. Just go to a site in another language and select the translate to English button when it pops up (options - under the hood - check the box that says to offer translations). I think you can also use the main google.com to translate pages as well. If its a language you know, give an explanation of what it should be and list possible reasons it got messed up.

Make sure what you create is coherent with the person's background, and explain what it might have meant for that person to use Facebook and twitter "way back then". Include screen shots and links to what you created, and elaborate on what their use of social media ...

Use Google Maps to tell a story of historical or literary figure! The only rules are that you have to use Google Maps proper in order to tell the story- the map by itself should tell a story. You will need to create a map under "My Places" and edit the map o add your locations. The story portions should be added to the descriptions in each location, use text, links, even pictures. In your bog post, use the link tool to embed and or link to your map. For examples see: http://www.wetellstories.co.uk/stories/week1/ as well as Google Lit Trips

Storify is a tool that allows you to pick and chose content from multiple social media sites- flickr, facebook, youtube, soundcloud, instagram, or just from a URL -- and to assemble it in a narrative. Often it is used to capture the highlights of an event, but there is no reason you could not use it to create a story constructed of bits that exist elsewhere on the net. See if you can tell an original story (or re-tell a known one) in the Storify site, and then embed the results in your own web site.
