Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 22, 3:11 PM

Now this is very interesting. We all know that our business stories are crafted to move people to action. But how does that happen really really, and how do you measure or evaluate it?


Here comes along Participant Media, an activist entertainment company to answer these vexing questions. They are developing a measuring tool to determine emotional response and level of engagement to films (stories).


There's still a way to go, but we should keep this on our radar screen for its application to business storytelling. Learn more about what's happening, the tool they are developing, and what's in store for us in the future by reading this post.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 21, 9:43 AM

Here's a handy, quick and dirty chart to keep in mind when advocating for storytelling in an organization. It covers all the salient points.


The only BIG piece I would add in the "Educate" category is -- give executives an experience! Don't tell them about storytelling, have them directly experience it themselves. Then debrief the experience so they get not only how it works, but the benefits. That's the magic that's been working for me for years.


So add "experience storytelling" into the mix and you will have greater success.

michaelpohl360's curator insight, May 22, 11:39 PM

Here's a process on how to establish storytelling as a skill among leaders. I'd just extend its scope to other roles in an organisation as well: sales processionals, consultants, customer service managers and others. They also benefit from personal and organisational storytelling, but all may be educated along this four-step approach. With stories, you inspire, impact, educate and convince people rather than with facts. Storytelling is relevant for a leaders' business.

How technology can unleash India’s full potential

How technology can unleash India’s full potential | Education, Technology and Storytelling | Scoop.it
Technology can fix corruption, health care, education, water sanitation and more.
Patricia Stitson's insight:

"Tens of millions of children in India receive substandard education or none at all.  It will take years to train new teachers and build schools, and an entire generation will be left out.  The only practical solution is to roll out digital tutors with the help of NGOs so that communities can uplift themselves."

 

Adoption is the only option.  While I still hear debates happening in the US it seems that the use of technology is the only way forward for many other countries.  I am fascinated to see what will happen with adaptive learning. 

 

"The digital tutor of the future will take students into holographic simulations to teach history, culture, and geography.  It will provide equally good education to all children, rich and poor."

E-Learning Design's Lost Focus on the Learner

E-Learning Design's Lost Focus on the Learner | Education, Technology and Storytelling | Scoop.it
Focusing on how to get started almost always seems to center on what the designer should do—and buy.
Patricia Stitson's insight:

How does using adding story into the education + technology equation = better learning?  We often think of interaction as the power to click.  However, people naturally engage with story that imprints learning much more effectively than rote memorization.  Learning how best to couch your learning in a Big Picture umbrella that involves story will cause your learners to naturally interact with your course, beyond just clicks.

Are We Solving For the Wrong Problems? - Disenthrall

Are We Solving For the Wrong Problems? - Disenthrall | Education, Technology and Storytelling | Scoop.it

We tackle problems every day. Different people solve problems differently. Some tackle them head on, some take a step back and ponder, and some simply react with the first solution that pops into their head. None of these approaches are always right and none of these are always wrong. Different problems call for …

Patricia Stitson's insight:

As a coach for many years I was constantly faced with trying to sort out what the underlying cause was when i student hit a proverbial 'brick wall'.  Sure we could have drilled and drilled at a particular exercise until it 'sunk in' but that usually just resulted in a bored and annoyed student whose morale was waning.  Often we had to take a step back to a place of success and build from there, or take a deeper look at what thought, idea, belief or even emotion was more or less blocking the learning. 

 

Similar to what is pointed out in this article, this process helped the student find their way back through all the minor failures and challenges to the original objective and empowered them to start to formulate their own strategy for getting there.  This empowerment is crucial to successful self-inspired learning.

The Other Brian Whitmer: Instructional Design is Not Interface Design

The Other Brian Whitmer: Instructional Design is Not Interface Design | Education, Technology and Storytelling | Scoop.it
Patricia Stitson's insight:

This same issue has surfaced with my work lately. 

 

For me I am faced with the question of where to strike a balance between interface design that will not DETER the learner from the experience but rather lure them in without confusing them.  Some of the audience I am working with are more mature and thus are not digital natives.  Unlike a millennial that spend lots of time gaming, this demographic is not going to be interested in a challenge of find what rock the nugget of info (gold) is under.  At the same time how do I bump it past boring flat presentation, possibly a bit of assessment type exercises and some forum posting.  Like Brian points out,

 

"It's not about forcing a learner to post at least once in the discussion board in order to get a grade, but it should be about exposing them to the experiences they mightn't pursue on their own that will help them deepen or solidify their understanding. Maybe in a perfect world all learners would see this as part of their successful learning workflow, in which case you could fall back to arguing that instructional design and interface design have the same goal, but that's not the case today."

 

Is this semantics or schematics?  How do we reach towards this when bespoke elearning is not quite there yet?  My thought is that you need to try to embed teaching how a ________(insert noun) needs to think in teaching the skills/understanding of what they need to think about and learn.  Ie, Recently on a NPR story about bee keeping I heard a woman exclaim, you have to learn how to think like a bee...not just about how to be a bee keeper!  Now that really brings some fun elearning to my mind.

Via Karen Dietz

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 5, 8:07 AM

I'm finally back online after a 2-week vacation so I'll be posting more regularly now.


And I found this terrific article on data and storytelling from HBR that is very wise. The author is Walter Frick and he's interviewing journalist Jim Tankersley of the Washington Post. Jim is talking about linking data and story together -- ways to do it and how to think about it. 


I love what he says here: "Data and visualizations and storytelling — human drama — when combined help readers understand concepts. I can get a lot from one great visual chart, I can get more context from several paragraphs just really laying out the conclusions of data. And I can get a lot out of a story about someone like me doing something that is interesting to me. But I think that when you bring them all together what you get is this experience where people have a process of discovery for themselves which I think is important for learning. If you are just looking at a chart you can try to figure out what it’s telling you and there’s a little bit of discovery as [you] decipher it. If that chart occurs in the natural flow of narrative or storytelling, then I think it’s almost a clue popping up as you’re trying to solve this mystery. I think that when they all work together, they're more powerful than any of them alone."


There are many other great insights and words of wisdom here for anyone who needs/wants to work with both stories and data together. There's lots to learn here.
