I wasn't too thrilled with the voice-over, but I can forsee utilizing this tool eventually.

Thank you for all the input Videoworld, Beth, and Mayra!

Baiba, my mistake and my apologies. I mixed up one post of yours with another and got myself confused. I have deleted my comments and I apologize for any inconvenience I may have caused.

Keep up the great curation work.

MediaShift Idea Lab-Meograph: The Future of Storytelling is 4D (with Context)

MediaShift Idea Lab-Meograph: The Future of Storytelling is 4D (with Context) | Current Updates | Scoop.it

From Karen: Now here's another cool tech tool to help augment our business storytelling! Thanks to Siobhan-O-Flynn for finding and sharing this! Below is part of the artice but there's so much more the article talks about regarding Meograph:

 

Meograph, new storytelling startup that launched in July, gives online journalists and storytellers an added dimension that too often has been missing: context.

 

With Meograph, you can create what co-founder and CEO Misha Leybovich calls "4D storytelling" through a simple interface that lets users add images, video and text to a story they want to tell. It's free.

 

"The big vision is that we want to democratize the creation of interactive video storytelling," Leybovich said over coffee at ING Cafe in San Francisco earlier this month.

 

Today if you have a story to tell, you can publish a video to YouTube and write a blog post about it, but it starts to get funky if you want to add a lot of photos or tell how the story evolves over time. Meograph lets you create and share interactive stories that combine video with maps, a timeline and links, filling in that often missing context of where and when...

Telling Stories, Connectedly

Telling Stories, Connectedly | Current Updates | Scoop.it
Telling stories, connectedlyScreen AfricaThere are a couple of points that are worth remembering as you try to transition to a more connected form of digital storytelling. Firstly, the audience is in control.

 

Now here is a thoughtful article that shares with us a glimpse of the future -- specifically the technologies on the horizon that will continue to change the tools we use to share our biz stories.

 

The main point of this post is the increasing importance of connecting and sharing your stories across different technology media -- computer, iPads, mobile. And in various forms -- digital stories, social media snippets, online maps, and the like. To be the most effective, your biz stories need to connect and link together -- be part of a focused whole.

 

This does not mean you have a single narrative that is shared across platforms and through different technologies. This means you have a series of biz stories that you share. Some of these stories are best shared digitally, some in social media, others face-to-face (yes, that is still a technology available to us!!), others on our website, etc. The entire collection of your biz stories create your brand, your voice, your reputation.

 

This is a good "let's step back and see the big picture" article.

 

I very much like the author's points at the end: all of these choices can be overwhelming, and get help from others to work with the new tools. Now if I just had a few more hours each day to use more of these digital tools .... :))

Latest update 06/23/13: the video has been viewed over 50 million times, and has just received Grand Prix honors at Cannes! So pay attention here :)

LOL -- I am laughing and now have today's ear worm to deal with from the song on this video!


What an ingenious 3 minute video. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9S267XXvuo


Now the point I really like that Gabrielle Dolan, the author of this blog post makes, is this: the transporation authority spent the bulk of the time in this video building an emotional connection to the audience before it ever delivers its message. 


And that is exactly what we should be doing with our biz storytelling, as Dolin also says. I agree.


While the video isn't a story, it does contain a great lesson for us all as we continue to hone our storytelling skills.


Enjoy the video!

A nice feature of this resource is that you can export your story to Kindle for a small fee (approx $10). You be able to read your ebook on your Kindle, or sell it through Amazon. The ebook reads like a normal Kindle ebook, except that choices are included using hyperlinks.

Robert Sims's curator insight, March 14, 2013 10:36 AM

I can see many possibilities for use in enhancing ELA writing skills!

Just Story It - Scoops | Current Updates | 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  ;

Hello Karen. "Here are the best articles from across the web that I can find on using stories and storytelling in business." Please scoop a new link to these articles. The link you put in the comments only points at your scoop page. Or was the message that your scoop page IS the collection of the great articles? A bit unclear. (PS: I suggested a scoop for you today)
Karen Dietz's comment, September 11, 2013 8:52 PM
Hi Thorsten -- the link needs fixing and I'm trying to do get that done. Thanks for your patience. The link should actually be to the entire curation. This post is a permanent post that acts as a kind of editorial page. The idea is when people want to direct others to the entire collection, they can scoop/re-scoop this page which should lead people to the site. Thanks for the comment and I'll work on clearing up any confusion! And many thanks for the suggestion, which I thought was fabulous.
