Newer technologies make animations easier to create at a reasonable cost, making the format a viable choice for instruction. With educational researchers piecing together the data on its effectiveness for learning, a set of design principles based on evidence is emerging. It is important to consider the research before choosing to use the animation format. Then animations will be able to meet their potential for learning.

There is a lot out there on the neuroscience of storytelling. Here's another terrific article that share more about the topic. What I particularly like is the author's discussion of the future of storytelling based on our current addiction to screen time, and some of the opportunities virtual reality storytelling bring.

 

It's an interesting read. What do you think of the narrative future proposed?

When someone tells us to share our personal story, we end up with the question: About what?!

 

Well here's a post to get you started about a number of stories you could tell. What I like is that they are unusual story prompts -- but easy to come up with stories about. And they definitely do the job of helping us tell our personal story.

 

So dig into this post and start using these prompts to craft some of your personal stories to have at the ready.

"It has been a commonly held belief that the gender gap in tech is primarily a pipeline issue; that there are simply not enough girls studying math and science. Recently updated information indicates an equal number of high school girls and boys participating in STEM electives, and at Stanford and Berkeley, 50% of the introductory computer science students are women. (However,) the U.S. Census Bureau reported last year that twice as many men as women with the same qualifications were working in STEM fields." – Bonnie Marcus

Last Saturday, I was on a panel with black women STEM professionals to talk about how we got to where we are in our fields. The host was Black Girls Code Boston. During the Q & A, a young man asked, “What programming languages do you like to use?” I noted how his eyes lit up in expectation. Scratch programming was mentioned and some heads were nodding in the audience but the kid wanted more. I talked about Processing and Arduino and how one was in Javascript and the other was C++. I also talked about Python, which allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than C++ or Java. None of the girls in attendance asked about coding but they were listening.

When a parent asked the BGCB panel to talk about what we would say to our 13 year old selves I talked about auditioning for a Teen Board to do something I didn’t think I could do (i.e., fashion merchandising, runway modeling, makeup). I didn’t think I was the type to do that. I tried out and forgot that I had done it until the day when I received the letter informing me that I was chosen. I remember the panic I felt but I participated, anyway. I feel the same way about computer programming. I thought artists didn’t program/code.
