Narrativs | In the Library and out in the world | Scoop.it
Stories that move us

Description by New Learning Times

 

"Everyone has a Story to Tell
Do you have a story you would like to share? Do you enjoy reading short stories?Narrativs believes that everyone has a story to tell and aims to connect people all over the world through storytelling. Narrativs has created a digital space where aspiring writers can gain support for their work and receive constructive criticism. On the Narrativs website everyone is invited to submit a poem or short story – fiction or non-fiction. The Narrativs editing team provides feedback on the submission and the author is encouraged to make the necessary changes. After the piece goes through the editing process the story is then published on the Narrativs site and readers can rate and write comments in reaction to the story. This new publishing format allows one to learn about the world from many different perspectives by reading this diverse collection of stories.

 

"Social Entrepreneurship 
Narrativs aims to give everyone a voice, not only by creating a platform for writers to share their work, but also by financially supporting non- profit projects that promote literacy. Founder, Rachel Ngoc Anh Bui was inspired to develop Narrativs after listening to a global responsibility-focused speech by the prince of Norway. Narrativs plans to gather the best stories from the site to publish in a book. The money that the book generates will be given to groups that aid education in developing countries. The Narrativs team hopes to inspire others to find ways to develop businesses that make the world a better place. The team has been visiting schools in the United States and motivating students to create businesses that are socially responsible. Narrativs is creating a valuable narrative around both digital authorship and global citizenship."

Jaime Parker's curator insight, July 10, 2013 11:22 AM

I have a friend who teaches English courses at the college level and this is her biggest complaint. She says that the students simply do not know how to research. They don't know how to use databases or how to evaluate websites which seems so crazy to me. I'm not sure why these skills aren't being taught or integrated into every content area. Perhaps too much time is being spent preparing students for standardized testing.

Many educators are explicitly teaching such skills as how to evaluate a website's credibility, how to use precise keywords, and how to better mine search engines.

Via Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby
Mayra.Loves.Books's insight:

From the article: "In November 2012, the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project released a study that surveyed 2,067 Advanced Placement and National Writing Project teachers. It found that while most teachers agreed that the Internet provides a wealth of information to students, they also said students often don't have the digital-literacy skills to wade through that information." That's why, more than ever, librarians are needed in schools!!

Great TED talk regarding education.  Some the key points I liked:

- Teaching is a creative profession.

- Educaitonn is about learning.

- Role of the teacher is to facilitate learning.

- Education is not a mechanized industrial system, but a human system.

- Role of Education Leaders is not command and control, but creating an institutional culture of possibility.

Lens – What am I looking for? (examples:  text evidence, word choice, structure, figurative language)Patterns –  What patterns do I notice?  (Not to pick out one just one word, but to look across the text to determine ‘What does the author tend to do?’)Idea -What is the big idea that this author is writing about?   (not just confirm previous thinking)”  (Kate Roberts, 6/26/2013, Teachers College Writing Institute)
