Beauty Is Cost of Content Marketing Poker

If your images don't ARREST anyone reads your stuff or plays your game. The new Howler magazine is showing the power of digital imagery. Arresting graphics get what every content marketer wants - engagement.

Make sure the writing is as good as the arresting visuals include a Call To Action (subscribe, comment, review, share, Like) and your content marketing will be good to go.

Your health plan – now with video games

Your health plan – now with video games | digital harddrives and memory retention | Scoop.it

Consumers and health experts alike have long tried to make healthy choices seem more palatable by adding a dose of fun. (Think parents sneaking vegetables into their kids’ macaroni and cheese.) Now, companies are getting in on the action, using games to nudge employees in a more healthful direction.

 

Experts say such game-like health programs can be used to encourage consumers to engage in a wide range of healthy activities—everything from working out to getting flu shots.

Video Game Therapy Used To Help Treat Kids With Chronic Pain

Video Game Therapy Used To Help Treat Kids With Chronic Pain | digital harddrives and memory retention | Scoop.it

The Children’s National Medical Center in Washington D.C. opened a new pain care complex this week which was built to introduce video games as a way to help young patients eliminate chronic pain. The games are specially designed and combined with Microsoft’s Kinect to help young patients improve their health without realizing it as games ask them to paint, play and exercise while doctors are on hand to analyze their range of motion.

Check out the video in the link. It shows how kids are using the intereactive programs and gives a glimpse of the potential of  what this new complex can achieve. The "pod beds" also look very interesting.

Céline Merchiers's curator insight, May 20, 2013 6:12 PM

This article shows an interesting combination of the hospitals services combined with the use of a special video game in a new pain care complex. This video game is specially designed and combined with Microsoft's Kinect to help young patients improve their health without realizing it while playing the game. The use of ICT in this case gives the patient the opportunity to perform a better range of motion and feeling a greater distraction from their pain.

When we talk about content marketing on Facebook, there are different media types: Status, Link, Video and Images. But images, as in many other online platforms and networks, have become the most consumed content format and today, they take about 50% of the News Feed.

Comics: Asian creators using the medium for social and gender justice

Comics: Asian creators using the medium for social and gender justice | digital harddrives and memory retention | Scoop.it

"This is pretty interesting video from Sharad Sharma – a growing network of mostly female creators who are utilising the comics medium and comics workshops to empower women and address social issues pertaining to gender in their part of the world, and also build on those strips to use them for other social commentary and discussion (such as creating comics addressing widespread issues of official corruption)."
