Edtech Coaches Book Study Twitter Archive

When Storify announced that they would be terminating their Twitter archival service, I began searching for alternative tools to archive our 2018 Book Study.  After some research, I decided to use an IFTTT applet to export Tweets with the #ETCoaches hashtag into a Google Sheet.  To make the information in the Google Sheet more accessible, I imported the spreadsheet into an Awesome Table and added filter/search functions to the table.  And to wrap everything up into a neat package, I imported the Awesome Table into a new Google Site that allowed me to add text and our PLN Logo to the page.

The clearest way to explain the details of the process is through video:

 

 

I am sharing the Google Sheet as a reference for the column headers and the CSS template on the second tab that are necessary to make the Awesome Table work.
