This Is How We'll Experience Storytelling in the Future | WIRED

This Is How We'll Experience Storytelling in the Future | WIRED | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
A new exhibition looks at ways storytelling will change in years to come.

 

IN THE FUTURE, you won’t just consume stories by watching a movie or tuning into a podcast via earbuds. You’ll be standing in the middle of them—maybe you’ll even be able to see the blurry  tip of your nose in front of you—with panoramic vision, perhaps a sense of smell, and maybe even the slight feeling of vertigo. “Originally stories were living things,” says Charlie Melcher. “It was a dialogue, something you could interrupt, or physically respond to.” Melcher thinks that sort of interactivity is exactly what the future holds...."

Alexis Niki's curator insight, April 21, 10:54 AM

"Conceived and organized by Future of Storytelling (FoST), "Sensory Stories," a new exhibition at the Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI) in New York City, will introduce audiences to innovative new methods of engaging with visual narratives..." 


Favorite insight via FoST founder Charles Melcher: "You can get literally immersed in a new world. You can see what it's like in someone else's eyes... My hope is that all of this leaves people, one, turned on and excited to go out and create stories in new ways; two, [getting] a sense of where technologies are headed — that there's a whole big world coming with storytelling potential; and three, feeling excited about being alive."

Nora Morton's curator insight, April 22, 4:33 PM

Fascinating new ways to present narratives... "letting us experience stories in a visceral, multi-sensual, personal and participatory way."  "Clouds over Sidra" is one of the projects featured in the exhibit created by vrse tools.  This virtual reality project immerses the viewer into a Syrian refugee camp through the eyes of a 12 year old girl.  Although vrse tools are out of my capacity to navigate, I can only imagine how cool it would be to recreate historical events in a virtual reality to allow students to explore the past in such an intimate way.

Kajsa Hartig's insight:

"The clever use of physical props – the ropes, and later, a rather terrifying rock climb – combined with sensory isolation made this something really quite special...the interest in the ‘monitoring of affect’ by authors is going to result in some very interesting new forms of ‘responsive storytelling’ in the next few years."

The Other Side of Storytelling: Listening | Chronicle of Philanthropy

The Other Side of Storytelling: Listening | Chronicle of Philanthropy | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it

StoryCorps founder and 2015 TED Prize winner of $1 million, Dave Isay, believes a genuine conversation can make a difference – and his group has created an app to facilitate those talks.

 

"When’s the last time someone listened to you? Really listened carefully? A time when the person listening wasn’t trying to get something out of you? How did it feel?


Maybe you felt understood. Appreciated. Noticed. Chances are, it felt pretty good.

 

It’s a special experience, especially for people who have been made to feel that they don’t matter. And it’s at the heart of StoryCorps, the nonprofit that provides people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives.

 

That mission got a boost last month when the organization launched the first version of its mobile app. The tool enables users to record an interview, take a picture to accompany it, and then tag and share the story. And like the rest of StoryCorps’s more than 50,000 recordings, stories uploaded using the mobile app during its first year will be archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. They will also appear on the new storycorps.me website.

 

The app was announced when StoryCorps founder Dave Isay was awarded the 2015 TED Prize by the global ideas nonprofit, granting him $1 million and the support of the TED audience to carry out a wish. He asked for help so that “anyone, anywhere, can easily record a meaningful interview with another human being, which then will be archived for history.”

The app looks clean and easy to use.  There's lots of information, and links to the app, on the https://storycorps.me/ site.


There are also lots more resources, like interview questions, and stories to listen to on StoryCorps main site.

5 key factors in a winning omni-channel experience

5 key factors in a winning omni-channel experience | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it

Research from Internet Retailer reveals that consumers are spending more and more time on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube. In fact, retailers report a 42 percent increase in referrals from these channels. This means shoppers APR far more likely to consult a social channel before making a purchase. And, when they do decide to buy, they are looking for low-cost, speedy delivery, simple and effective online and voice customer service options, and the ability to make returns and exchanges at the physical location.

 

In other words, they want every avenue available to them, at every minute of the day, and if you aren’t ready to meet them there, you’re going to lose out,.

How Can Storytelling Help You Create Amazing Web Content? | Inbound

How Can Storytelling Help You Create Amazing Web Content? | Inbound | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it

"You may be wondering: how could fiction inspire your next ad copy, blog post or website content? In other words, how can you make the most of fabricated concepts that are not even remotely connected to our reality to reach a certain audience, stimulate sales, build trust and credibility and achieve any other marketing goal with minimal effort?

 

The truth is that there are quite a few similarities between copywriting and fiction writing. According to Writer’s Digest, by relying on first-class fiction storytelling you can make your readers feel your message more intensely and make them become more inclined to buy whatever it is that you’re selling. You also learn to build suspense, embrace a conversational tone, play with different emotions and create one or more memorable characters and situations that are vivid enough to raise the interest of your readers."

 

Read more about these 10 effective ways in which fiction storytelling can breathe new life into your copy:

By Helping People Understand Your Mission, Vision and Purpose in BusinessBy Helping Prospects Understand What Your Products Are All AboutBy Ensuring a Better Visualization of the Bait That You Use to Attract CustomersBy Encouraging Customer FeedbackBy Turning Business-Specific Stories into Shareable PiecesBy Enabling You to Build a Stronger Relationship with Your AudienceBy Helping You Introduce and Explain a New Concept Through Familiar OnesBy Allowing You to Become Noticeable in an Extremely Dynamic EnvironmentBy Unveiling the Recipe for Palatable Web ContentBy Improving the Overall User Experience
