Many Ways to Tell a Story: How Transmedia Is Transforming Education In and Out of Classrooms

Many Ways to Tell a Story: How Transmedia Is Transforming Education In and Out of Classrooms | Psychology of Media & Technology | Scoop.it

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's insight:

Transmedia approaches encourage (or even force) people to actively acknowledge and design for a fluid and multi-dimensional, rather than linear, media environment.  For the human brain, stories are not constrained by what's on the page. Transmedia begins to replicate how we think and encourages producers to innovate in each platform to create multiple touchpoints that facilitate our natural ability to imagine, project, expand and experience.

Cheryl Frose's curator insight, June 12, 2014 6:03 PM

Transmedia, a broad descriptive word that literally translated means “across media” and encompasses many strategies that transverse industries, is generally regarded as the use of multiple media platforms to tell a story or story experience. Though the word “transmedia” is thought to have entertainment franchise origins, its adaptation for education purposes is both valuable and becoming more and more common. While teachers like Sansing are using coding and programming in their language arts instruction, others are taking advantage of increasingly sophisticated apps and interactive media for classroom use.

I guess this another favorite topic for me. Imagine using transmedia to teach maths and include cross over language components. After all maths has a language of its own.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's insight:

#Psych note: storytelling is one of the most powerful ways to change beliefs and behavior that are the foundation for social roles.  Transmedia and other immersive narratives can expand gender roles in ways that traditional media can't.  From Cate McQuillen: "There’s such a need for a girl who’s not a princess."  I would rephrase w/what transmedia delivers: "there's such a need to experience being a girl (or being around a girl) who is not a princess."

Can Binge-Viewing TV Actually Be Good for Kids? Amazon Has a Plan

Can Binge-Viewing TV Actually Be Good for Kids? Amazon Has a Plan | Psychology of Media & Technology | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Dr. Pamela Rutledge's insight:

Journalists and society-at-large do #Amazon and viewers a huge disservice by tagging kid-centric content as '#binge-viewing' as if putting the viewer in control of what he/she watches is a bad thing--not to mention that it has nothing to do with what Amazon is trying to accomplish with their programming for preschoolers.  


Creators working with Amazon have intentionally tried to step out of their adult bias and look through eyes of preschoolers.  Their goal is to create engaging content that triggers curiosity and creativity.   This is the same approach I advocate for storytelling and central to the persona development and audience profiling in the courses & workshops we teach via Fielding's Masters program.  The fact that Amazon streaming allows for viewer controlled consumption encourages other activities because there is no #FOMO by playing through scheduled broadcasts.  Seriously, how is this even remotely negative?  When will we get over blaming the audience for exercising choice in content consumption?  I get how this is disruptive to current business models and how media companies might not be thrilled at having to be more creative to earn attention and loyalty, but consumers should be celebrating not labeling and journalists should get on board.

Ben Travers:  "With the studio's first ever original kids' shows debuting this summer, Amazon is trying to break into children’s programming from a groundbreaking new angle: long-term education."

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, May 27, 2014 4:08 AM

 Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios:

:

"We're not asking them to sit in front of the television and tie them to a block of programming [like with standard broadcast television]. They can pause it.

They can rewatch it. It offers up a nice amount of flexibility, so I don't think it's just about keeping them in front of a 'screen' for us."
