6-Word Storytelling Challenge: Not Sure You’re Doing This Right

6-Word Storytelling Challenge: Not Sure You’re Doing This Right | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

I recently came across an online article inviting a group of business storytellers to take up the Hemingway 6-word challenge — that is to write their own story in only six words. [When he was challenged to do so, Hemingway famously responded: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”]

My story colleague Paul Smith, who wrote the fab book "Lead With A Story" for leaders, is coming out with his new book "Parenting With A Story" Nov. 12th. You can read more about it here: http://amzn.to/1ti7sBu 


In this post Smith tackles the challenge of creating a 6-word story ala Ernest Hemingway. When you are trying to write a story -- I mean a real story -- for social media (i.e. 140 characters), mastering this skill is critical. And darn hard.


You can see how we all fumble with this in the post Paul writes, and the examples folks share. Lots of comments and opinions abound -- but no story.


Here's my attempt at a 6-word story: Played golf. Boss won. Kept job.


Here it is as a 127 character Twitter post: From my window in Palm Springs, golfers whack the balls. Who will win as they swagger through the greens? Ahh, the boss prevails again and jobs are kept.


Read what others did and submit your own. Have fun with this. And remember, constraints are essential to creativity!

How to Use Scratch for Digital Storytelling - graphite

How to Use Scratch for Digital Storytelling - graphite | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Digital storytelling involves combining digital media (images, voice narration, music, text, or motion) to tell a story. Over the past few years, digital storytelling has become an increasingly popular and effective way for students to meet a range of learning goals in the classroom. Scratch, a programming project from the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, might be an unexpected tool for digital storytelling. But using Scratch to tell a story is a “twofer”: Students practice important ELA skills and at the same time use computational thinking."

Les activités de programmation permettent de développer des compétences dans le domaine de l'informatique. Les élèves du primaire, comprennent la nécessité de prévoir et d'exécuter un programme pour transmettre un message à destinataire.

Coast to Coast: Baseball Hall of Fame Geography Lessons

Coast to Coast:  Baseball Hall of Fame Geography Lessons | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

to #mThe history of baseball reflects the story of expansion in the United States. New cities have emerged and modern stadiums have been built as a growing population fueled the popularity of our National Pastime. The result is an extensive network of baseball teams at every level - from the major leagues to the little leagues - that represent the communities and environments in which they play. Everything from jersey colors, names, and symbols to the foods served at ballparks reflects the local landscape and culture of baseball teams. A simple game that began with a bat and ball is now a comprehensive case study of how people and geography are interrelated.

 
All of the lessons and activities have been prepared to accompany "Geography: Baseball Coast to Coast." You will find that the curriculum is organized into three levels: Level 1 for elementary school students, Level 2 for middle school students, and Level 3 for high school students.

Thanks to the NCGE and the Baseball Hall of Fame for working together to bring us these great resources...play ball!!  On a local note, what baseball team is the most popular in your area?  Is there a geography to fan support? 

Lauren Sellers's curator insight, May 28, 11:50 PM

It neat to think as the population grew a new city needed a new field and team and they use the landscape and culture around them to help decide factors of a team including the name and mascot and even the food. An example would be although you would find hot dogs in every stadium its probably a specialty in Chicago while in New York its pizza and down south in Texas its nachos.

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.

The Best Language Learning Apps For 2015 - Te@chThought

The Best Language Learning Apps For 2015 - Te@chThought | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

 - TeachThoughtSkills like vocabulary and foreign language speaking are right in the sweet spot of what unattended and automated–often considered the very worst kind–can do.

But it needn’t be that way. Handing a student a tablet as they practice basic skills with an app–especially one with adaptive design–is a perfectly legitimate use of edtech as far as we’re concerned, and language learning is very much a part of that.

So with that in mind are ten of the best language learning apps for 2015, updated to include those with social dynamics, like HelloTalk, recent entries like Rosetta Stone, and stalwart Duolingo. We’ve also made an effort to include multiple languages, including Mandarin, French, Spanish, and English.

The communication explosion reaches its peak when you explore the endless avenues running through TED Talks. Moreover, the title educator embodies many forms within these talks.

So it’s precisely for this reason that any educator benefits from so many of these talks. Each speaker reveals his or her passion of a view or a subject with the enthusiasm of a first-year teacher.

Using TED Talks to convey an important message or spark creativity might be more effective in teaching students than an individual agenda or preconceived notion of what should be said. Furthermore, TED Talks challenges educators everywhere to think differently and encourage the same in their students.

These are the best TED Talks for any educator because they make us laugh, warm our hearts, break down barriers, and always inspire us to dig a little deeper and push a little harder, challenging your educator perspective.
