Any story we tell of our species, any science of human nature, that ignores how important stories are in shaping what and how we think and feel is false. We evolved to be ultra-social (and self-deficient), so we care deeply about character and plot.

These 10 short interactive films are amazing. They are all unqiue, employing different methods for viewers to engage with the story.

 

My colleague Mark Goldman reminded me of this piece. I'd seen it earlier but not had the time to dig into it. I took the time today to do so, and am glad I did. I think you will be amazed also.

 

Enjoy the many ways stories can be told -- especially using different techniques and technologies. You don't need all these bells and whistles, but I bet you'll get ideas for ways you want to share some of your stories.

Teen mom who beat the odds helps Indigenous girls graduate

Teen mom who beat the odds helps Indigenous girls graduate | Story Route | Scoop.it

"A Métis woman who graduated high school despite having three babies as a teenager has now returned to the teen parent support centre as a teacher to help other teen moms graduate high school.

Summary from Academica Group - Wednesday 14 June, 2017:


Regina teacher who beat the odds helps other teen moms graduate 


Regina Shirley Schneider Support Centre teacher and coordinator Nicole Morrow helps Indigenous teen moms graduate through a unique program, reports CBC. 


Morrow earned her high school diploma over seven years while giving birth to three children, and then went on to earn her teaching certificate from the Saskatchewan Urban Native Teacher Education Program (SUNTEP) at the University of Regina. 


Now, Morrow coordinates a daycare that currently houses 36 infants and 12 toddlers while the children's’ mothers attend Balfour Collegiate. 


Various resources are made available to both the mothers and babies through the support centre that Morrow coordinates, including food, bus passes, and clothing; two full-time support workers; a nurse practitioner and health workers; an addictions counsellor; and an Elder. 


“I'm always happy to come to school. [...] They're very understanding because they know we have children," commented Taye Starr Bellegarde of the Star Blanket Cree Nation, who moved to Regina to enroll in the program. “I'm getting good grades and I'm able to just walk down the hall to daycare to see her.”

Here's a solid article by Carmine Gallo about the 3 elementary ingredients a personal story needs to inspire others, and hopefully move them to action.

 

Gallo has a good discussion of all 3 elements, and explains them in a video that's part of the post. When you are crafting your personal stories, this is a good place to start.
