Juliana Loh's curator insight, July 14, 3:20 PM
AR as a precursor to VR is recognizing a need to release control of their players. Game design is changing as people are negotiating that space between what they are able to do, what their limitations are within the game + and what they are able to 'get away with'. AR pushes the boundaries of imagination by providing space for the wearer to create and experience their own identity within the choices they make. What is challenged is their sense of identity and self-expression.

The Power Of Storytelling From John Kotter

The Power Of Storytelling From John Kotter | immersive media | Scoop.it
There’s enough evidence today that the brain is hardwired for stories and by that I mean that they can easily slide into our minds with a bit of emotional punch that keeps them memorable and ‘sticky.’ If the story holds some basic lessons, then they have a chance of staying around over time and modifying what we do: changing actions, reinforcing behaviors, making us do what we do (or need to stop doing) with more confidence.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 8, 1:00 PM

Here are 2 heavyweights talking about the power of storytelling: its stickiness, fables, Bruno Bettelheim, evolution and storytelling, and how storytelling can generate long lasting effects. 

 

John Kotter is Founder and Chairman of Kotter International and Professor of Leadership, Emeritus at Harvard Business School. In this post he's talking with his friend Michael McCaskey, author, photographer and former President of the Chicago Bears about the power of storytelling in personal and organizational life.

 

I had the privilege of being certified by Kotter himself in his change management system. He's always been deeply involved in stories, using them in his work.

 

This is a nice, easy read -- perfect for a Friday. Enjoy!

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 12, 12:49 PM

If you are into the neuroscience of storytelling, this post is for you. Peter Pynta of Neuro Insight shares his company's research on films from Cannes 2016 and which parts of stories get encoded into long term memory.

 

In this article they analyze a fab short film of a man called Deng Adut. The film is 1min. 30 sec. long. In real time you get to see how people's brains react to the film. Every time the graph goes above the top line, that piece of the film is getting stored into long term memory. So cool.

 

There are other links in the article about additional Neuro Insight research on storytelling and long term memory. The company's focus is only on applying their research to the advertising industry, but I think we can all learn from their results.

Art Jones's curator insight, July 13, 10:41 AM

We humans have been sharing stories since the beginning of time. We've always known that stories have a captivating way of calling people to take action. 

 

Today science provides us with proof of the power of story. This article dissects one short video and illustrates for us those scenes that evoke emotion and are stored into our long term memory and the parts we pass on.

Last Saturday on the July 4th weekend, Garrison Keillor signed off of hosting his long running show Prairie Home Companion. This post talks about the influence Keillor's storytelling had on America and the knack he had for uniting so many disparate people and points of view.

 

Keillor always insisted he was not a storyteller, to the amusement of most storytellers. Denying it doesn't make it so. He is a masterful storyteller. I know I'll miss him, and look forward to listening to lots of reruns.

Using the Rule of Three for Learning | Ben Johnson Blog | Edutopia.org

Using the Rule of Three for Learning | Ben Johnson Blog | Edutopia.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

In math, the Rule of Three is a method of finding a ratio. In English essay writing, the Rule of Three states that things are more interesting to read in triads. In presentations, the Rule of Three comes in handy to keep the audience engaged, and in entertainment, the idea of trebling makes jokes and gags funnier.

As it turns out, economists, chemists, aviators, and scuba divers use the Rule of Three (even Agatha Christie did when she wrote a series of plays entitled, The Rule of Three).


Although it has not been labeled as the Rule of Three, great educators have used it in classrooms since Aristotle (ever heard of syllogisms?).


So what is the Rule of Three for learning? Well it is as simple as one, two, three (not kidding). The Rule of Three for learning basically establishes the requirement that students be given the opportunity to learn something at least three times before they are expected to know it and apply it.
