Definition of Transmedia

Transmedia storytelling, as it is defined by Henry Jenkinsrepresents a process where integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery channels for the purpose of creating a unified and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally, each medium makes it own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story.

Why Getting Comfortable With Discomfort Is Crucial To Success

Why Getting Comfortable With Discomfort Is Crucial To Success | Creative Writing | Scoop.it
In an increasingly competitive, cautious and accelerated world, those who are willing to take risks, step out of their comfort zone and into the discomfort of uncertainty will be those who will reap the biggest rewards.

Great scoop by Anne Leong via via @anne_leong.  As a work with a number of clients and continue my own journey through this process, I find the questions listed extremely helpful!


Again and again, we have to decide:

  • Do I keep doing what’s always been done, or challenge old assumptions ad try new approaches to problems?
  • Do I proactively seek new challenges or just manage those I already have?
  • Do I risk being exposed and vulnerable, or act to protect my pride and patch of power?  
  • Do I ask for what I really want, or just for what I think others want to give me?
  • Do I ‘toot my horn’ to ensure others know what I’m capable of, or just hope my efforts will be noticed?
  • Do I speak my mind or bite my lip, lest I ruffle feathers or subject myself to criticism?
Brian Kirby's curator insight, April 1, 11:07 AM

Wow, those questions were not exactly "fun" to answer (especially rapidly and honestly). However, I have always been told that "If your dreams don't scare you, then they aren't big enough". This is something that I have lived my life by for quite some time now, and it definitely appears to be more than true... "If you are always comfortable, then you are never growing." It's worth some discomfort/fear in order to grow and reach goals! Thoughts? How tempting is it to stay under the umbrella of comfort? Is it worth it?

Dan Biles's curator insight, March 20, 8:34 AM

Avoid paralysis by analysis..."Highly effective leaders are decisive when called upon to make tough calls quickly and confidently. Take a moment to assess a difficult situation and then calmly and rationally consider your options. As soon as you have the information you need to make an informed decision, make it. Don't let fear of being wrong prevent you from making what you know is the right call."

7 Ways To Use Google Tools To Maximize Learning - Edudemic

7 Ways To Use Google Tools To Maximize Learning - Edudemic | Creative Writing | Scoop.it
There are a boatload of awesome Google tools that we use every day. And they’re free, too, which tends to be a big winner for teachers and students. Free is probably the number one reason for giving Google’s tools a try – you haven’t lost anything but a bit of time if you decide you …

Sharrock's curator insight, March 26, 7:44 PM
Beth Dichter's insight:

Google provides so many tools it is hard to keep track of all of them. This post provides information on 7 tools that may find a place in your classroom. 
Would you like to provide audio feedback to your students, or have peers provide audio feedback? If you are using Google Drive this is possible.

Do you have a student that needs a clean and clear space to write, with no distractions? If Chrome is available as a browser consider installing the app Write Space, a "minimalist text editor."

If students are working in Google Drive and are researching a paper they may have found the Research Tool that allows you to quickly search the web for specific information, make suggestions and more.

Google Forms continues to add features, including the ability to create surveys. Have your students design a survey and graph their data, or use it the survey tool to do a quick formative assessment as an exit ticket.

Learn more about Moderator, Image Directory, and Google Templates (that's right, Google has templates designed for students and teachers) in the post. Chances are you will find at least one or two tools to use for yourself or with your students (or both)!

This is the second perspective on Maslow's hierarchy I have seen in the past few weeks.  As we try to make learning more rigorous and more inclusive for all students the importance of meeting student needs in a variety of ways is very important.  This must include Social/emotional as well as technological.
