Looks like...Pixton, crossed with Amazon's storyboarding tool? Except both of those have higher price-points for educators, and I can see how this offering, which cuts somewhere between the stilted Amazon version and the extremely customizable Pixton, hits a nice balance between constraint and freedom. Easier to use than Pixton, though not quite as powerful. Cheap, and pretty good looking.

Fact.'s curator insight, May 25, 2013 6:17 AM
A proprement parler, l’ARG est un jeu à réalité augmentée (Alternate Reality Game), un jeu qui mêle donc le côté immersif de la fiction au monde réel et à l’environnement du spectateur. Plus important, en téléportant la fiction dans la réalité, en l’inscrivant dans un contexte parfois hors écran on lui donne de fait une toute autre dimension, on responsabilise le participant en lui proposant un rôle précis (et une mission précise à accomplir) et sa participation va être décuplée.

“Magic is theatre, and every trick is a story.”

The 7 Literacies of Transmedia Storytelling

The 7 Literacies of Transmedia Storytelling | New Media, Culture and Creativity | Scoop.it

"Henry Jenkins defines transmedia storytelling as "a process where integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery  channels for the purpose of creating a unified

and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally, each medium makes it own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story.

 

In transmedia storytelling, narrative is central to the story, which is told across multiple platforms, and may include sound, images, text, movie and gaming elements. The best part about it is that each of those elements plays an integral part of the narrative. And without experiencing all of those elements, you miss the full story. That’s what makes transmedia storytelling a powerful tool for 21st century literacy and learning..."

Why Storytelling Is The Future of Marketing

Katherine Anne's curator insight, October 7, 2013 5:48 PM

I think this video is very accurate. Today, we are bombarded by information about what we should buy, what we should do, etc. How much of this information do we actually retain? Barley nothing! For something to be retained, it has to be rememberable; what's rememberable? STORIES! The video explains stories are rememberable because they are meaningful. The Internet can so easily simplify information to market products, which ends up having so much information about so many different products all the time. If we take the time to explain a story behind a product when marketing it, I think it will be more profitable. STORIES are the new successful marketing strategy in this world filled with noise and information. 

Andrea Gilgenbach's curator insight, October 9, 2013 1:10 PM

Storytelling works because stories are memorable, impactful, and personal. This video also features statistics about why the combination of data and story produces the biggest effect.

Marco Gabrielli's curator insight, November 12, 2013 2:30 PM

Jennifer Aaker illustra in un video l'efficacia della narrazione nella comunicazione di marketing.

 

"... le storie sono significative, memorabili e incisive, e motivano le persone nel compiere un'azione ..."

 

a) I lettori memorizzano meglio il messaggio;

 

b) Ascoltano, si fidano e acquistano;

 

c) Vivono le emozioni e razionalizzano solo dopo.

 

La narrazione ritrova il suo originale ruolo di mercato, pilotando le conversazioni di business.

Charlotte Au's curator insight, March 26, 2014 8:17 AM

This diagram explains how PR has evolved through the adoption of social media. It shows that many old forms of marketing and media have become outdated and are been replaced by social media instead. This includes bloggers replacing reporters, twitter replacing news, YouTube replacing TVs and Pinterest replacing product shots. It also explains that social media allows authentic and credible information to be delivered speedily through social media networks which in turn assists businesses to form stronger relationships with their customers.

For business storytelling to be a success there needs to be a good strategy around making money. Given that eBooks and apps are so popular there is a definate opportunity to tell a great story using these platfrorms to create a more engaged community. I haven't bought this book but it seems to really understand transmedia and the use of muliple patforms.

Storytelling and Real Storytelling

Storytelling and Real Storytelling | New Media, Culture and Creativity | Scoop.it

There's a lot of talk about storytelling going around these days. Over the past several years, this timeless and infinitely familiar craft has become somewhat of a darling in the corporate world, with more and more companies looking to use storytelling in their communications and branding efforts.

 

The fact that storytelling is in fashion is not surprising. Since man first started communicating with each other, stories have been the way we most readily and naturally share thoughts, feelings and experiences with others. Throughout history, great leaders have used storytelling to connect people to ideas, to each other and to a vision of the future they feel inspired and empowered to make real. (Watch Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech, and you'll see what I mean) Storytelling works because it's already in our nature, and a well-crafted story well told has a way of reaching through and touching us in ways that the typical advertising campaign or mission statement simply can't.

 

With that said, there is a big difference between storytelling and strategic storytelling. In many instances, the term storytelling has simply become a euphemism for corporate communications or advertising, with hopes of putting a fresh spin on increasingly stale practices. In contrast, strategic storytelling leverages the inherent power of this timeless art of humanity and uses it to shape the way people think, focus their understanding, and compel them towards desired actions. Storytelling on its own typically involves telling any story. In contrast, strategic storytelling involves envisioning, finding and telling the right stories.
