Lino's curator insight, July 12, 2013 4:13 AM

Es una aplicación potente y muy fácil de usar que nos permite crear clips de vídeo reproduciendo una historia  con frases de texto que hayamos ideado entre dos o más personajes.

 

El video final se puede compartir directamente en Google+ o como un enlace para cualquier sitio que deseemos (por desgracia, no se muestra una vista previa o miniatura cuando se trata de compartir vídeo creado con StoryBuilder en Facebook).

 

Una gran herramienta.

 

De uso libre. (No tenemos que registrarte o iniciar sesión para acceder a ella).

Visual Storytelling: The Key Weapon to Content Marketing

Visual Storytelling: The Key Weapon to Content Marketing | Mobile Websites vs Mobile Apps | Scoop.it

"Thanks to social networks, we’ve naturally been driven to a host of metrics that include attributes of “engagement” and conversations shared online."

 

"This, in turn, has fueled the content marketing race – and ultimately, the quest for producing what is most relevant or valuable to a company’s current and prospective customers."

 

"As we compete in this context to draw attention for our brand and offerings, perhaps one element has remained constant above all others: the power of visual storytelling."

A nice feature of this resource is that you can export your story to Kindle for a small fee (approx $10). You be able to read your ebook on your Kindle, or sell it through Amazon. The ebook reads like a normal Kindle ebook, except that choices are included using hyperlinks.

Robert Sims's curator insight, March 14, 2013 10:36 AM

I can see many possibilities for use in enhancing ELA writing skills!

Telling Stories with Maps | Esri Insider

Telling Stories with Maps | Esri Insider | Mobile Websites vs Mobile Apps | Scoop.it

"So where do maps fit in the storytelling realm? I recently spoke with Allen Carroll, who left National Geographic about a year ago and is now ArcGIS Online Content Program Manager at Esri, about Story Maps—a new initiative he’s working on with David Asbury, Lee Bock, and Stephen Sylvia to integrate storytelling and maps."

 

Can you tell stories with maps? Yes you can!

 

OK -- I love maps. I'm a geographer at heart. I love reading them and finding all the tiniest back roads to travel.

 

Here is a terrific interview with Exec. VP & Chief Cartographer at National Geographic Maps about their story and map initiative. He explains what they are doing and how storytelling through maps can happen. It is another creative twist on visual storytelling and infographics.

 

Even better, check out this link for actual examples: http://storymaps.esri.com/home/ 

 

Is it classic traditional storytelling? Well.....it's kind of borderline. But does it work? Oftentimes yes.

 

Now what the heck can this do for a business? Well, think about your biz stories and how they could be charted on a map. Add a map to your About Page to visually represent your journey. Add a map to your Founding Story so we can see it visually.

 

I bet you will come up with several more ideas!

 

Go read the article and check out the examples and let me know which ones you like best :)

What New Media Must Learn From Comics

The comic book industry teaches us many lessons about New Media and the new consumer. Are you familiar with the comic book, Superman - Red Son? It was released in 2003 to critical acclaim and became a nomination for the...

 

OK -- what's this got to do with biz storytelling?  Well, everything! 

 

I love the author's point: biz storytelling is how you imagine and re-imagine stories that will get your audiences inspired.  Mitch Joel has other points to make in this article to help you build desire, which is also important.

 

Engaging audiences is hard enough to do. But sharing compelling stories about you, your company, your products/services is very powerful to build engagement.  

 

But I'm thinking that these days, more and more, our biz storytelling needs to be about something greater than simply engaging our audiences -- we need to inspire them.  

 

How do you inspire them? We can do this not only by following Mitch's tips, but by adding a story we forget to tell -- our future story.

 

This is a story about your vision of the future -- the future you are creating with your business and how customers, by being in a relationship with you, help create that future.  Now that can be awesomely inspiring.  Think TOMS shoes.  Think Toyota's Prius.  Think your company.  How is your work making a difference?  Start there.  Keep exploring.  The story is just below the surface.  Find it.  Bring it alive.  Share it.  Keep the inspiration flowing.

Telling Stories, Connectedly

Telling Stories, Connectedly | Mobile Websites vs Mobile Apps | Scoop.it
Telling stories, connectedlyScreen AfricaThere are a couple of points that are worth remembering as you try to transition to a more connected form of digital storytelling. Firstly, the audience is in control.

 

Now here is a thoughtful article that shares with us a glimpse of the future -- specifically the technologies on the horizon that will continue to change the tools we use to share our biz stories.

 

The main point of this post is the increasing importance of connecting and sharing your stories across different technology media -- computer, iPads, mobile. And in various forms -- digital stories, social media snippets, online maps, and the like. To be the most effective, your biz stories need to connect and link together -- be part of a focused whole.

 

This does not mean you have a single narrative that is shared across platforms and through different technologies. This means you have a series of biz stories that you share. Some of these stories are best shared digitally, some in social media, others face-to-face (yes, that is still a technology available to us!!), others on our website, etc. The entire collection of your biz stories create your brand, your voice, your reputation.

 

This is a good "let's step back and see the big picture" article.

 

I very much like the author's points at the end: all of these choices can be overwhelming, and get help from others to work with the new tools. Now if I just had a few more hours each day to use more of these digital tools .... :))
