Memloom: A New Way To Tell Stories

Memloom: A New Way To Tell Stories | Serious Play |

Memloom, a new startup launching today, is looking to find a niche somewhere in between blogging and photo-printing services, like those provided by Shutterfly. The idea is to get consumers not just to share their photos, but tell their stories, through a combination of photos, videos, audio, and text. The resulting creations appear more like magazine-style articles, which can be viewed online, printed at home, or shared to social networks like Facebook or Twitter.

Interesting  idea,  could use as a class project too!

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, January 9, 2014 2:31 PM

Is Memloom all that different from other digital storytelling tools?  I am hoping for a iPhone version where stories can be compiled on the fly, reflective of the chaos of real life.

corneja's curator insight, January 10, 2014 8:27 PM

Memloon seems an easy tool for building stories for our photos. Could it will be used by brands? Maybe, I guess.

Tips and techniques for using storytelling in technical training | TechRepublic

Tips and techniques for using storytelling in technical training | TechRepublic | Serious Play |

Storytelling and training
All of us are natural storytellers, which can come in handy if you’re a trainer and need to impart technical knowledge to students. Some of us, though, may feel frightened at the idea of having to create a unique and helpful story to use in a training class. To help with this process, we have provided a template to guide you through the process of story creation. As a trainer, you can use it to develop your own stories or present it in class to aid participants with their own stories.

The story spine
The story spine, originally created by playwright Kenn Adams, is a tool for creating well-structured stories. It is a series of sentence fragments that prompt the narrative elements of a story, and it can be used by itself or in conjunction with any exercise in which individuals or groups are asked to make up stories.

As a group activity, participants can complete each sentence to create satisfying narratives, or the trainer can present the template as a guide for individuals sharing their experiences.
