Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 24, 11:15 AM

Want your content to go viral? Then you've got to read this post.

 

Written by Kerry JonesKelsey Libert, and Kristin Tynski for Harvard Business Review (HBR), this article discusses recent research that nails the formula for creating viral content. The formula parallels with storytelling elements that make for great stories.

 

Yay! As the authors say, "Marketers wanting to increase viral potential can create the ideal configuration of arousal and dominance for reaching a massive audience by incorporating the right emotional combinations into their content."

 

They not only share the research around the formula, they also provide links to great examples to back up their points.

Encourage your discouraged readers! 5 digital tools to spark a love of reading - ISTE

Encourage your discouraged readers! 5 digital tools to spark a love of reading - ISTE | Litteris | Scoop.it
The 21st century is an exciting time of change. A great deal of that change is an outgrowth of the technological explosion. But our children have no concept of this “change” because technology has always been a part of their lives. 

In this digital environment, it is more important than ever that children are proficient readers. Yet we continue to see students in our classrooms who we label “reluctant readers” — those who can read but choose not to. We need to help these discouraged students find their motivation or passion for reading.

While there is no easy way to make kids want to read, we all know the odds are better if an activity seems popular, cool and fun. One way to do that is through technology. Here are some digital tools that can help engage students in reading.
