Presentation Rubric: Is your presentation ready for an A+? | immersive media | Scoop.it

Most colleges and business schools use a Presentation Rubric to evaluate their students. Funny thing is, they’re not usually that open about sharing it with their students (as if that would do any harm!)

Well, we don’t believe in shutting down information. Quite the contrary: I think the best way to practice your speech is to know exactly what is being tested!

10 popular grammar myths debunked by a Harvard linguist | Richard Feloni | BizInsider

10 popular grammar myths debunked by a Harvard linguist | Richard Feloni | BizInsider | immersive media | Scoop.it

Elementary-school students learning how to write simultaneously learn the rules of grammar, and the two approaches can be difficult to balance.

It's why many teachers ingrain in their students a combination of white lies and formal habits that are meant to keep their writing focused but aren't actually based on rules of the English language.

As the students grow into adults, these habits result in plenty of incorrectly worded but well-intentioned sentences.

Harvard cognitive scientist and linguist Steven Pinker explores some of the most common myths and the mistakes they produce in his book "The Sense of Style," which is like a modern version of Strunk and White's classic "The Elements of Style," based on linguistics and updated for the 21st century.

Pinker strips popular grammar guides of the 20th century of their sanctity and instead delves into the evolution of English and how it was constructed and used for centuries to determine what is correct.

Here are some of the grammar myths that may be muddling your writing.

Given the ways in which tech careers are constantly evolving and changing, the obvious answer that equates “tech” with “STEM” no longer suffices. Here’s an insightful essay on finding a better answer.

How to Use Scratch for Digital Storytelling | Donna Markey | Graphite.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

Digital storytelling involves combining digital media (images, voice narration, music, text, or motion) to tell a story. Over the past few years, digital storytelling has become an increasingly popular and effective way for students to meet a range of learning goals in the classroom. Scratch, a programming project from the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, might be an unexpected tool for digital storytelling. But using Scratch to tell a story is a “twofer”: Students practice important ELA skills and, at the same time, use computational thinking.

As students build their stories in Scratch, their work aligns with ISTE's definition of computational thinking. With Scratch, students.

12 storytelling + brand archetypes to grow your business | immersive media | Scoop.it
Successful brands have a strong sense of identity, one that mirrors the hopes and aspirations of their customers. But finding your voice – especially as a small business – can be difficult.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 1, 1:03 PM

Blogger Ffion at Sparkol knocks it out of the park again by writing a post that clearly articulates/summarizes the 12 most potent archetypes to use in your storytelling and branding efforts. These are all tried and tested, and will grow your business.


Ffion's post is a summary of the masterful book "The Hero and The Outlaw: Building Extraordinary Brands Through The Power of Archetypes", written by Margaret Mark and Carol Pearson (2001). It's been a go-to book in my library since it came out.


The book gives lots of examples of companies who have used the archetypes successfully. What I love about Ffion's article is that she includes video clips of companies using the archetypes so we get the archetype really fast.


Enjoy this romp through archetypes that work. I'm sure you'll recognize the archetype(s) you are using. This post will help you leverage your archetypes more consciously and deliberately.

Stories are the way in which our brains interpret the world around us, from dynamizing relationship with other people, to the way in which we interpret communications. Storynomics is the practice of applying this story arc to your business’s narrative.

“People really need to know how to execute story in terms of marketing, branding, advertising, and so forth; and in terms of leadership: how you manage and lead people by communicating with them in story form, especially in strategy, because a business strategy, of course, is a story yet to happen.”
