A free and open world depends on a free and open Internet. Governments alone, working behind closed doors, should not direct its future. The billions of people around the globe who use the Internet should have a voice.

Just Story It - Scoops

Just Story It - Scoops | Computers4Kids! | Scoop.it

Here are the best articles from across the web that I can find on using stories and storytelling in business.

I've chosen them because they actually make a contribution to our knowledge and wisdom about stories, show us how to apply stories to growing our businesses, or give valuable how-to tips.

 

I weed out all the junk. And besides, who needs another post in why storytelling is important?? Where's the beef?? We want the meat!

 

I've written reviews of each article to share what I like best, what you can get from reading the article, or what may be missing in the article.

 

How To Find A Topic: Click on the Filter tab above, and type in a keyword. All the articles with that keyword will appear.

 

I may occassionally review an article that I think is problematic as a way to educate us all, although most I will simply pass over.  If you wonder if I've seen an article that is not included here, send me a message and I'll respond.

After doing biz story work for over a decade (and with a PhD in Folklore) I hope you find many great insights and tips here. Many thanks for visiting and enjoy the articles!

 

And I hope you will also visit my website for more tips and tools, & take the free Story IQ assessment so you can see how well developed your storytelling skills and knowledge is: http://www.juststoryit.com/storyiq  ;

The Pedagogies in Game Based Learning: A Case Study of Teacher Attitudes & Perceptions | AvatarGeneration

The Pedagogies in Game Based Learning: A Case Study of Teacher Attitudes & Perceptions | AvatarGeneration | Computers4Kids! | Scoop.it

AvatarGenerations' Editor built a Serious Game using a platform called ThinkingWorlds to showcase the pedagogies in games and to investigate how teacher attitudes and perceptions changed before and after playing the game. The objective of the game was to provide a tailored contextual experience in a school environment that would have a positive affect on preconceptions, and change negative attitudes towards the role of serious games in the classroom. The game was designed to allow teachers to experience a range of educational activities, each built upon a clear and established pedagogy:   Gagné’s (1985) ‘Nine Events of Instruction’, Mayer’s (2002) cognitive theory of multimedia learning, Lave and Wenger’s situational learning theory (Lave and Wenger 1991), Kolb (1984) experiential learning theory and Skinner’s (1954) operant conditioning theory.

"When e-textbooks were first introduced, they were supposed to be the wave of the future, and experts thought we’d see e-reader-toting students littering college campuses, and of course being adopted in droves by online university students. But they haven’t taken off quite as expected..."
