Bit by Bit: Experiments in Digital Storytelling

Bit by Bit: Experiments in Digital Storytelling | Libraries for elementary | Scoop.it

"The democratization of creative tools—code, data and algorithms—have changed the relationship between creator and audience. Stories are spilling off screens and into the real world and a new storytelling grammar is being shaped due to shifts in media consumption and device penetration."

A great blog post about the importance of school librarians. SMT's need to read this and begin to understand the important role that a school librarian can play in their school. We are not those people that issue books and keep control at lunchtime. They are important but they are not librarians.

Stories on an Interactive Map -- New Digital Story Tool

Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 11, 2014 11:16 AM

Here's another new and interesting digital tool for storytelling. Called "Findery", it lets you write stories about where you've been and leave them on an interactive map.


Now this can be really cool. Or not -- depending on if stories/anecdotes/vignettes are really shared. I think if people were posting a bunch of opinions or thoughts like "What a wonderful place! Really liked the redwoods" would be boring.


So I checked out the map and some of the postings. Yep -- no stories. Boring stuff. Some photos. Some descriptions. Yawn.


Yet I think if a company was able to use this tool and generate a map of stories -- think along their supply chain, or in the creation of a product -- it could be really cool. But I'm not sure the tool is set up that way.


And Findery seems also more like another twist on a social media platform. So if a company builds a story map, it stays on the platform. Darn.


OK -- so maybe there are better tools out there for businesses to use to craft and share stories visually in new and interesting ways. Or maybe one of you can build it!


In the meantime, check out Findery and see what you think. Maybe you'll find a cool use for it that I missed.
