Storytelling is changing: Are we teaching our kids the new ways?

Storytelling is changing: Are we teaching our kids the new ways? | Elementary Technology Education | Scoop.it
New software is changing the face of storytelling and I wonder if we are preparing our students for the change.

It started a few years back (at least that is when I first noticed it) with a few apps that allowed storytellers to add visual elements to their stories. The first I ever saw was an app called Visual Poet a pretty simply app that allowed a poet to add three pictures to their poem. Of course someone didn’t have to be a poet to use the app. A student could use the app to make a 3 panel

Ian M Cooper Cole, JFS Marketing Consutants's curator insight, March 27, 8:13 AM

This is so true, we all think we can rely on Google as a credible source. But they use an arbitrary algorithm which is created and constantly modified by a an insular team of silicon valley kids.

Their primary motivation is profit for Google, not our well being or enlightenment. Google has double the amount of advertising space on their search page in tha last 4 years.

The algorithm says new is better than old information, which may be true when it comes to searching "plane crash" but for "thanksgiving turkey recipes" ?

This is a good read.
