We're living in the future. So why are a lot of students stuck with heavy print textbooks still? What would Steve Jobs say? Perhaps it's time to consider going digital.

Share stories...that's what people want to hear. 

Jim Signorelli,Story-Lab's curator insight, October 25, 2013 7:54 AM

Annette Simmons,  one of the "Storyati," has a new weekly podcast. 

In this, her second podcast, and while interviewing my delightful story friend Karen Dietz,  they talk about their connection to story, what it means to them and how they help others make the most of its power. Karen,  who claims she's more of a story scholar than a storyteller, does a pretty good job of telling her own story about some funny things that happened on the way to her doctorate.    Highly recommend a listen and subscribing to these podcasts. 


Don Cloud's curator insight, October 25, 2013 9:25 PM

The best stories are those worth sharing.  Even better stories are those that a leader helps his/her people to create together.

A praga da leitura obrigatória

A praga da leitura obrigatória | Litteris | Scoop.it

Na escola, nos jornais ou na internet, não faltam pessoas para dizer o que devemos ler.

Quer convencer alguém a abandonar um hábito prazeroso? Basta transformá-lo em obrigação. Nos esportes, é comum ver amadores talentosos abandonando seus sonhos ao deparar com a rotina árdua necessária para competir profissionalmente.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, October 24, 2013 11:00 PM

Writers write because they need to as much as because they want to. Authors like Neil Gaiman create remarkable worlds and have what some might consider unusual perspectives on the world in which they live. Writers are aware of their readers--as should always be the case. The more we know what our readers like about our writing, the better able we are to write for them.

Sarah McElrath's curator insight, October 25, 2013 8:46 AM

As a librarian, I so agree with this. I've seen very well-meaning teachers make reading into nothing but a chore. Here's hoping people get Gaiman's message.
