Creating social phrasebooks with Phraseum

Creating social phrasebooks with Phraseum | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

I spend a lot of time looking at different web-based tools and apps and thinking about if and how they can be used for learning. Sometimes it takes some thought and at other times it’s really obvious. With Phraseum it was instantly obvious that this was a really great tool for learning.

Video storytelling: conflict is a must have in biz stories

Why do so many videos made by companies fall flat? In many cases, it's because they lack the essential component of storytelling - conflict.

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s curator insight, February 26, 12:39 AM

This article made so much sense to me that I had to sit down and listen to the podcast right away.  Here's some comments that stood out for me:

  • Brands are struggling.  What's missing is conflict.

  • Need to inject conflict without damaging the brand.

  • Too many provide a false picture – everything is wonderful.

  • Have to (provide and) overcome the conflict or the listener won’t like it.

  • Conflict – get as close as possible to death.

  • Conflict – best kind of universal truth.


How to find your org/brands conflict?  Need to take a softer look at the notion of conflict (the term conflict brings up certain imagery, feelings).  Conflict is simply something to overcome.  Ask yourself - do we want to be a company who wants to overcome things?


There's also a great made-up example (Donut Corp) provided of how an organization could find it's conflict.

Theophilus's curator insight, March 19, 4:03 AM

What I like about this idea is the centrality of learning as opposed to the centrality of the device. We've discovered that sharing a device have far-reaching and positive possibilities for networking, interaction, teamwork and collaboration in the formal learning environment. OLPC is an example of a notion that goes the other way - individualism, not to mention, the complexities when trying to enable young learners to focus.

Don Breedwell's curator insight, March 23, 3:48 PM
