“[The artwork] was done in a collage technique from Dutch and Flemish Renaissance painting,” he told me, adding that it took about four years to be completed when factoring in Alice’s programming, sound effects, and copywriting efforts. “I had a team that included an after-effects specialist, two programmers, a sound effects person, and a copywriter.”...

How curiosity changes the brain to enhance learning

How curiosity changes the brain to enhance learning | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
The more curious we are about a topic, the easier it is to learn information about that topic. New research provides insights into what happens in our brains when curiosity is piqued. The findings could help scientists find ways to enhance overall learning and memory in both healthy individuals and those with neurological conditions.

3 Simple Ways to Start Your Story | Get Storied

3 Simple Ways to Start Your Story | Get Storied | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it

Storytelling can be complex and the information about storytelling, well, overwhelming. The good news, is that you can start either way — from the future (with a vision story) or the past (with an origin story). In this article I want to show you simple ways that you can dive right into telling your story (without fretting or worrying so much if you’re getting it right).

In a recent client workshop in New York City we unpacked this process, sharing some of my favorite ways to lead off any purposeful story. I shared six kick-off phrases that ANYONE can use to start a story in a way that’s compelling, uplifting, and inspiring. I like to think of it as Mad-Libs for transformational storytelling!

The Story Literally Spills Out Of You, When You Use One Of These 6 Kick-Off Phrases.

These 6 strategies are something we cover in great depth in our StoryU Online course Undeniable Story. Today, I want to share with you a few of them that are really important in setting the context and frame for your marketing, storytelling, and leadership efforts....

10 Content Marketing Lessons From The World's Fastest Growing Websites

10 Content Marketing Lessons From The World's Fastest Growing Websites | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it

Buzzfeed, Upworthy and the humble blogs of this world are the new content kings. Many blogs have more readers and eyeball traffic than traditional and national magazines.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, October 1, 9:01 PM

Because we live in Web 2.0, we all have to become media if we want to be visible and successful as professionals or businesses. But how are we going to become media? Like the previous century dying dinosaurs or like the new media rock stars?


What BuzzFeed, Upworthy and - to add to the list - Business Insider or the Huffington Post have in common is that none of them is producing 100% of the content they publish: they aggregate, they have contributors and they curate with added-value and talent. 

CESSON's curator insight, October 2, 1:31 PM

No one says “I want to be average”

People publish on Facebook and get excited when it gets 100 likes. Teenagers can be overheard saying “that photo isn’t worth sharing because no one will comment or share“. Bloggers are always looking for that post to go viral but just won’t admit it.

The result of his trip is evident in his powerful and beautiful immersive web documentary, "Unknown Spring," which was awarded the World Press Photo Multimedia Awards."

I like this piece because it pulls together a number of areas that interest me.

 

First, this is someone doing something without a big budget and receiving international acclaim. That someone is young. It is relevant to the environment. And it includes my thoughts on new opportunities for youth for employment alternatives.
