Beyond the Hero’s Journey: Four innovative models for digital story design | steveseager

Beyond the Hero’s Journey: Four innovative models for digital story design | steveseager | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"Roland Barthes, master linguist and semiotician once said: “There are countless forms of narrative in the world.” And yet the majority of western storytellers have been ploughing just one narrative model for well over 60 years: Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey from the Hero with a Thousand Faces.

 

While it has its value, Campbell’s model is not a useful model for digital story design on a structural level. Down below, I offer four alternative narrative structures that we could use to design intelligent stories more fitting to our digital context."

Effective schools make a big difference in student achievement. Effective leadership makes a positive difference, too. Effective teachers, however, directly impact student learning and achievement. It’s been shown that teachers who have a large repertoire of effective instructional strategies teach differently. They’re more intentional in their objectives, strategies, and intended outcomes. And, have better results. …

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 8, 1:34 PM

Innovative storytelling is on the rise! Here's the second post today on creative developments in business storytelling.


This drinking game to generate stories made me smile and wish I was in the room with this group!


The post by Ilan Mochari @IlanMochari gives the directions for how to use this game to generate stories and visual storyboards in a fast and fun way. And it teaches everyone a lot about communication, too.


Why would you want to use this game? In this instance it was used to generate new ideas for marketing and branding campaigns. As the author says, it's easy to rinse and repeat previous campaigns, and harder to come up with new ones.


I think it's ingenious and definitely want to try it out. If you experiment with it, let us know what happens. And what other ways could you use this game in business?


Have fun and story on :)

5 Ideas to Make Lectures and Presentations Interactive | Tech Learning | Serious Play | Scoop.it
When I was a student, I had a problem staying awake in class. I felt bad and teachers were mad. Today, as a teacher myself, I discovered the blame was misplaced. I was sleeping because of boring lesson delivery. When I teach a class or an auditorium with hundreds, there is never any sleeping going on because I have an interactive and engaging delivery. Whether delivering a lesson to school children or providing professional development to adults, in today’s fast-paced, digital world, your audience deserves to have an interactive presentation where they are engaged.

 

Incorporate some of the strategies below and leave behind the days of sit and git lectures or presentations.
