The Neurochemistry of Empathy, Storytelling, and the Dramatic Arc, Animated

The Neurochemistry of Empathy, Storytelling, and the Dramatic Arc, Animated | Mobile Education | Scoop.it
What cortisol and oxytocin have to do with a 19th-century German playwright.

 

From Maria Popova, aka @brainpickings - 

 

There is a scientifically proven biochemical reaction to stories that tells us how different stories can affect behavior. While this isn't news in many ways, it's important to reinforce the idea that storytelling needs to be woven intentionally as a part of development of any business model. What I mean by storytelling isn't just the story that is told by those creating the new business/product/service, but the story that the new business/product or service creates by itself. Does your software tell a story? Does your website tell a story when someone lands on the screen? Does the app have a story to tell for the new user, or the regularly returning one?

 

Look for the story, over and over again, that the business creates; and don't be afraid of it telling different stories. 

 

Most importantly, find the story that's already there: it may tell you why the business is doing well or not.

who killed videogames? (a ghost story) | insert credit | Mobile Education | Scoop.it

I personally, think it shines a glaring light on the differences between "gamification" (leveling and rank to drive positive educational outcomes) and "social gaming" (casino-like algorithms used to milk micropayments out of sheep like prey who thrive on instant gratification so much they will pay a doller not to wait on a "cute " virtual reward).

"social gaming" seems sooo dystopic and insidious to me now...

Top 10 TED Talks For Video And Animation Creatives | Wooshii Blog

Top 10 TED Talks For Video And Animation Creatives | Wooshii Blog | Mobile Education | Scoop.it

Here is a post curating TED talks that can be inspiring for not only Video and Animation Creatives, but for many looking for pathways to innovation.

 

Many of them focus on storytelling, and, in particular, where either a particular kind of storytelling or the story being told resonates with enough people to "go viral" , become a blockbuster hit, or turn into a meme.

 

The last of the 10 specifically speaks about innovation, but they all carry elements that should be applied to every kind of innovation project in which you engage.

SpeEdChange: Changing Gears 2012: rejecting the "flip"

SpeEdChange: Changing Gears 2012: rejecting the "flip" | Mobile Education | Scoop.it

"...the "Flipped Classroom" is worse than 'typical homework' - it literally shifts the explanatory part of school away from the educators and to the home, however disconnected that home might be, however un-educated parents might be, however non-English speaking that home might be, however chaotic that home might be. So, kids with built in advantages get help with the understanding, and kids without come to school the next day clueless. Those "flip" advocates who acknowledge this talk about ways of "catching kids up," of providing school time for those without access or resources at home, but what this really means is putting the kids from homes in poverty into perpetual remediation as the wealthy continue to blaze ahead."
