Storytelling's Periodic Table: A Great Tool to Play With

Storytelling's Periodic Table: A Great Tool to Play With | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
You probably won't recognize these storytelling elements from creative writing class.

 

"Karen Dietz's insight:

Not only is this a great tool to use, but what I really like about this article is that is hows how to use it!

 

"And it gives more background on how the table was created (culled from TV plots). 

 

"The table creates wild and fun plots to play with -- even for business stories! In fact, you may find some of yours buried in here.

 

"Or if you are stuck for stories, play around with the table and I bet you will find some to tell from your real life.

 

"In any event, this should keep you busy and happy for awhile :))"

This is a signficant resource which you need to examine for areas of interest, for the online exhibition that is of interest to you. I loved the one on Robben Island. I actually went there. I went on a boat from Capetown which you can see from the island . The Robben Island tour shows the prison that held Mandela and is conducted by a person who was similarly imprisoned.

As the world moves to greater internet connectivity I foresee the day when smart devices will allow people from all works of life and languages to communicate face to face and distantly. the Universal Translator of Star Trek fame is arriving centuries earlier than imagined.
