Yes, Barb's insights are right on target.  I have been using EdPuzzle and find it easy to use and providing a complete package for teachers who want to ascertain which students viewed the video, answered the embedded questions, which questions were answered correctly or what did they understand from the video!   Highly recommend.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 17, 2014 2:05 PM

These are 4 essential principles for effective storytelling and filmmaker Ken Burns explains all really well.


I don't call them tips, because they are more than that. They truly are some of the best ways to think and be with your business stories. Principles like Find the drama and characters of your story and let them speak; tell the story your own way; and find the format in the story -- as opposed to stuffing a story into a predefined one-size-fits-all structure.


To quote the article, "Burns says that storytelling isn’t so much a process of arriving at a previously determined end, but about an investigation of the material."


If you can get that thought, it's revolutionary. The quote speaks to the teller's ability to learn more about the story by continually reflecting on it, becoming more self-aware. That self-awareness leads to not only better storytelling, but also deeper listening and greater empathy/connection with your listeners.


There is lots of food for thought here that will help make you a better teller of your business stories. And there are some terrific clips to illustrate the points. Have fun with this one.

Nick Urban's curator insight, July 17, 2015 3:40 PM

For teachers interested in transforming their social studies classroom from the traditional mode to a more digitally based curriculum will find this fascinating. The ability to convert old PowerPoint presentations into videos that can be directly uploaded to YouTube are a tremendous offering. Creating and crafting your own podcast channel via YouTube is a terrific way of allowing your lessons to go home with the class and allows you more time in class to spend engaging students in the content!

Took less than 30 minutes to sign up, create a movie, and publish it to YouTube. A good prep before introducing iMovie to younger grades. Very simple to use. Perfect for Google Apps for Education.

Teaching Kids about Global Poverty

Teaching Kids about Global Poverty | Character and character tools | Scoop.it

"Living on One Dollar is a full-length documentary made by four college students who traveled to rural Guatemala to live on just a dollar a day. Upon their return, they created Living On One, a nonprofit to raise awareness and inspire action around global issues like hunger and poverty -- and started by publishing the Change Series of video shorts. I found it so compelling I've dedicated this whole film fest to it. Each episode not only succinctly frames an issue faced by people in the developing world and makes it personal, but also offers resource links to learn more -- and even better -- to do something about it."
