Children's Technology Review » Is There a Transmedia Generation Gap? | Progressive Storytelling | Scoop.it

I noticed at the recent Children’s Media Conference in England, however, that conversations about transmedia seemed to have a new, more organic and natural flow to them. These presentations and discussions came from experts across mediums – publishing, broadcasting, games, virtual worlds, mobile media – and in sessions with varied themes – creative content, audience engagement, financial models. Their approach bespoke a coherent development process, in which pieces of the story were parceled out to the appropriate platforms from the start, rather than beginning from one device as the omphalos and tacking on other pieces.

Only a few days ago, we were writing about how users of Twitter and Reddit used those networks to tell a compelling story about a mass shooting in Toronto, and now the same phenomenon is playing out in real-time during another horrific incident: a shooting at a movie theater in Colorado that has killed at least a dozen people and wounded more than 50. Although local TV news channels and CNN have been all over the story since it broke late Thursday night, some of the best fact-based information gathering has been taking place on Reddit and via curation tools like Storify. In each of these events, we can see how a new form of journalism — one that blends traditional reporting and crowdsourced reports — is taking shape...

Six Characteristics of Highly Persuasive Stories

Six Characteristics of Highly Persuasive Stories | Progressive Storytelling | Scoop.it

One of the toughest persuasion tasks is convincing a jury in a courtroom....

 

...Researchers Philip Mazzocco and Melanie Green draw a contrast between rhetorical persuasion, in essence arguing with facts and logic, and the use of narratives to influence decisions. They conclude that stories are more effective at changing emotional beliefs that logical arguments have difficulty reaching.

 

The whole discussion is an interesting read, but for me one big takeaway is the list of factors that have been found to make stories more persuasive:

 

Delivery Counts. For spoken narratives (as one normally finds in a courtroom), a good storyteller is more persuasive than a mediocre one....

"For over a decade the Semantic Web has been maligned, misconstrued and misunderstood. It’s been overhyped by its supporters while its critics have hung the albatross of artificial intelligence around its neckFor over a decade the Semantic Web has been maligned, misconstrued and misunderstood.

 

It’s been overhyped by its supporters while its critics have hung the albatross of artificial intelligence around its neck. Even its successes have been understated, often coming with little fanfare and without the mindshare and hype surrounding other trends such as Web 2.0, NoSQL or Big Data.

 

... The Semantic Web is emerging as the technology of choice for tackling some of today’s most pressing challenges in enterprise information management. This article is the first in a series that will introduce and explain Semantic Web technologies and their role in enterprise information management today".
