Mike Vogel:  "Here’s a dilemma every transmedia producer faces… You discover a new storytelling platform–maybe you get in to their invite-only beta–and you create a story that uses the strengths of that platform. The platform gives you a powerful new way to express yourself interactively, but then something happens. Maybe the startup runs out of funding, gets acquired, or changes their business model. Suddenly the DNA of your story is no longer available to you. Your story can no longer be told."

This 3d cube presents six audio/video streams on the six faces of a cube. As the user rotates the cube in three dimensions, the audio streams mix and transition smoothly according to which face is most in view.

 

The technology driving this is WebGL and HTML5 soon to become familiar to us all, and bringing improved quality for accessing and viewing three dimensional environments.

Here is an article about some innovative ways companies are using Snapchat for delivering stories now that the platform has added video and text message chatting.


No question -- doing this kind of storytelling takes planning and time. Maybe you can do it on the fly but I'd want to think through a strategy first. The examples in this article will get you started.


Bottom line -- there are so many ways for companies to share their stories! Figure out what technologies/channels work for you. Maybe Snapchat is a powerful medium for you.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 13, 2014 12:43 PM

Michael Bay's presentation disaster has been making the rounds for days now. Here's a SlideShare piece with advice for how to avoid something similar in your life.


I like most of the points made here -- especially 'know your stuff' and the insights about a presentation not being about perfection.


The point I disagree with is practicing in front of a mirror. Why? Because storytelling is practiced with a trusted listening partner.  


In the end, if Michael had actually prepared his presentation as a story several things would have happened:

  1. He would have remembered all of his points
  2. He wouldn't have needed to rely on technology or a teleprompter to deliver his talk.


I can tell story was never part of his presentation -- I bet it was just a bunch of boring facts and figures. Which is why he got flustered and walked off stage saying he couldn't remember what he was supposed to say.


Never ever let this happen to you. Craft your presentation as a story! You'll will not have to worry about technology failing. And you will always win the day.

What a fabulous post that sets the record straight on digital storytelling!


All too often digital storytelling gets caught up in the technology and channels first, rather than on the quality of the story itself.  This post is a terrific reminder of what to really pay attention to when creating a digital story.


Want your story to go viral? Then this is how to do it. I also love that this post by Silvia Tolisano is chock full of solid examples to back up the points being made. Woo hoo! And isn't the opening infographic great?


Dig in here. If you follow these tips, I foresee amazing digital stories emerging from you all!

Want a better website? Then design for storytelling. That's the point of this post.


What I think is really great in this article are all the fabulous examples of websites from around the globe that have designed their website as a story. Doing so is tricky, so having examples to look at is key. And there are a lot here to investigate.


Dig into these websites and look to see how you can beef yours up with better storytelling design.

Columbia joins the MIT and Duke University in the search for 21st century storytelling. It is interdisciplinary, that's one thing.

 

There are probably a lot of other academic programs in other universities as well. It's exciting to see interdisciplinary programs such as Duke' GreaterThanGames initiative give birth to awesome projects.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 13, 2014 4:49 PM

One thing that would be helpful is not to force digital technologies on good teachers. They need support and it can be provided by providing them with opportunities to plan their professional development. They other thing that is important is do not assume that resistance is being tech shy. I resisted, but am hardly tech shy. What I resisted was the external experts who thought they knew more about my teaching and students than I did.
