Storytelling For Social Change: NY City Police's Powerful Twist

Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 28, 11:53 AM

This is a very powerful video designed to spark change. It takes the lessons from the Significant Objects Project (attach a personal story to an inexpensive garage sale item and purchasers bid to buy it at a 2,000-6,000 price increase) and applies it to social change. This time it's guns.


Whatever you think about gun ownership, this is an amazing example of what happens when people are told the story behind the weapon. It's a brilliant use of storytelling and gives us ideas of other ways to link stories and objects together.


If you are in favor of gun ownership, you are going to hate this video. If you believe gun deaths are a national health crisis, you will love it.


And don't think I'm naive on this topic. I'm no stranger to guns. I grew up in the military, was around weapons all my life, and back in the day won prizes for my marksmanship. I think this video is awesome and hats off to the NY City Police for putting this together.


Thank you to colleague Mary Alice Arthur for posting the French version to Facebook and pointing it out to me.

IL: Three 16-Year-Olds Hatch Production Company in Englewood Incubator | Andrea Watson | DNAinfo.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Three teens from the South Side of Chicago, IL have come together to form their own production company, and they say they hope to encourage other black youths.

“I’m glad that we’re doing this because this can show young black kids that you can actually do something, that playing sports isn’t the only way you can make it in life,” said 16-year-old Devin Buckley, whose squad consists of 16-year-olds Chris Berry and Regis Luckett.

The idea to launch the Chicago-based company, VIP Productions, came after exposure to the new Blue 1647 Englewood Business Accelerator, which is housed in the U.S. Bank building, 815 W. 63rd St. The 1,600-square-feet business incubator opened its doors to the community in April, aimed at helping emerging entrepreneurs. The office has meeting rooms and private office space. Workshops, courses and technical assistance are also provided.

U.S. Education Department bars states from offering alternative tests to most students with disabilities | Valerie Strauss | WashPost.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

A new rule issued by the U.S. Education Department requires all states to stop offering alternative standards and aligned standardized tests to nearly all students with disabilities after the 2015-16 school year.

As published in the Federal Rule, the rule is called “Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged; Assistance to States for the Education of Children With Disabilities,” and it requires states to give the same assessments to students without disabilities as to the vast majority of those with disabilities under the premise that nearly all students can “make academic progress when provided with challenging instruction and appropriate supports.”

Effective Sept. 21, 2015, the official rule summary says:

Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 28, 12:01 PM

Here's a fabulous post that speaks to the creative process anyone goes through when improving their business storytelling skills and expanding their authentic voice.


It takes awhile to do both, and not many folk in our field talk about the inner process of becoming a fabulous storyteller. This article explains the 4 stages that occur.


I love that for each stage, the author, Todd Henry, provides several provocative questions for us to help us get through it. Brilliant!


The weekend is here, and its a perfect time to contemplate where you are in the process, and what's coming next.

48,000+ students refused the testocracy in Washington State by opting out.  This isn't an "anomaly", it's an uprising | Carolyn Leith | Seattle Education | immersive media | Scoop.it

How many students opted out of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) in Washington State? Short answer: More than you probably imagined.

Now that the final numbers are out, let’s dig in and see what happened.

11th Grade

We knew the opt out numbers were going to be huge. Last week’s OSPI report confirmed that. Across the state, the opt out rate for 11th grade was 49.3% for ELA and 52.9% for Math. This translates into:

37,112 students opted out of the English Language Arts (ELA)

39,444 students opted out of Math

Virtual theater opens new doors for performance artists | Kate Abrosimova | Hypergrid Business | immersive media | Scoop.it

Storytelling is a valuable form of human expression that has been around since the very ancient times. Story itself is essential to so many art forms, and theater is one of them.

We have written before about how virtual reality could be applied to journalism and immersive storytelling. Theatrical “storytellers” are yet another creative group who can benefit from holding performances in virtual settings.

In fact, virtual theater isn’t even new. There are several organizations that already use virtual worlds to produce theatrical live performances for people who have appreciation for acting and playwriting.
