What I didn’t realize at the time was that by naming my business ‘Narrative’ I would find myself on a journey I never expected. My name has led me to people who study narrative therapy and leadership, to conflict resolution specialists and mediators, it has even led me to performance artists around the world who recognize the art form of storytelling. My business is expanding to include new ideas and new ways of building narrative. I am working with clients who understand the need to focus on the internal state of their organization while at the same time sending messages out to the general public through websites, video and twitter.

 

Corporate Storytelling can be a powerful tool that can build bridges and help people see eye to eye within an organization. My role is to bring different groups together and use the simple, yet often neglected, role of storytelling to help people connect at a more personal and emotional level.

The Top 17 Free Digital Storytelling Apps for The iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Top 17 Free Digital Storytelling Apps for The iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Narrative practice | Scoop.it

"One of the things I like the most about iPad is its ability to support all the major e-reader platforms. Its interactivity and audio capabilities have even added a new dimension to read alouds and bedtime stories, making it an ideal device for digital storytelling. And since Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has already featured a List of The Best Digital Storytelling Tools ( web and desktop version ) then we deem it equally important to provide another list of such tools but this time for the iPad.

Below is a list of some of the best free digital storytelling tools available for the iPad."

How a Map Is Like an Op-Ed: Geography as a Storytelling Tool

How a Map Is Like an Op-Ed: Geography as a Storytelling Tool | Narrative practice | Scoop.it

Thanks to the open data movement and Google Map Maker, anyone with a computer can create a map. These maps tell a story, but it's a subjective one. And while that can be a powerful tool, it can also skew perspectives and cloud a debate.

"We should really teach people to read maps in that way," says Laura Kurgan, an associate professor of architecture at Columbia University. "Maps are arguments, just like a piece of written journalism is an argument."

Inside Stories: "RADICAL LISTENING": AN INTERVIEW WITH DR. KAETHE WEINGARTEN

Inside Stories: "RADICAL LISTENING": AN INTERVIEW WITH DR. KAETHE WEINGARTEN | Narrative practice | Scoop.it

There is a view that stories are always a contrivance, that they make meaning out of essentially random events. Is there such a thing as a “natural” narrative that emerges in postmodern narrative family therapy, as opposed to a constructed narrative? 

My position would be that all narratives are co-constructed through the process of conversation. If a different group of people were present, a different narrative would emerge. At the same time, I do think that there are constraints on how varied the narrative can be. So I’d probably take a more moderate position on that.

Wendy MacNaughton: "There’s this thing called narrative therapy in social work practice in which you work with a client to examine their existing narrative, deconstruct it, and reconstruct a new, more empowering narrative. I like to think there’s an element of that in my work. In this case, though, there are two clients: the people whose stories I’m telling, and the reader who is gaining an appreciation for communities outside of their own."
