Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I curated this earlier the day "Snow Fall" came out. Those of you that didn't read /view Snow Fall then need to take some time an experience this as so many of us already have done. The uses of this full blow media story telling feast in Education or just plain self development and life long learning will be amazing. Anyone interested in teaching anything should be aware of this multifaceted story telling and information sharing leap.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 2, 2013 4:53 PM

If you haven't read the New York Times story "Snow Fall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek" you are totally missing a fab reading experience.


So what's this got to do with business storytelling? Because it shows that long-form storytelling is still popular despite all the wailing and moaning about people's short attentions spans destroying storytelling.


The proof is in the pudding -- 3.5 billion page views at the end of Dec. and probably more now.


It is a captivating story and I was immediately hooked reading it.


What can this mean for you? Well for one, don't get all twisted up about only creating short stories. A well-crafted story will always be engaging so don't worry about the length. Worry about crafting it well. You can always shorten it to fit a particular context later.


And second, if you are wanting to share your stories as part of your content strategy, let it rip. But take some lessons from "Snow Fall":

  1. Add visual media.
  2. Pay attention to crafting a powerful beginning. 
  3. Find a place on your website for long-form storytelling.
  4. Share your longer stories orally when you can.
  5. Have fun.


Think about how you can use long-form storytelling to your advantage. Now go read "Snow Fall" and settle in for a great story!

Thanks for your comment Monica and so glad you curated it also. Yes, it is a very powerful story in and of itself, and its implications are far reaching for any kind of knowledge transfer.

W. Bradley Gooderham's curator insight, January 28, 4:38 PM

The future need innovators and the present needs innovative teachers to nurture them.   Creativity and the ability to innovate are natural characteristics but they must be built up and encouraged in our students, colleagues, and selves.


IteratED is committed to bringing out and nurturing the best in all of our faculty and students. We understand that this requires greater autonomy to make decisions and more trust in the natural ability to learn through exploration.


Are you a teacher who wants to reach for your highest potential? We are here to help you get there. Contact IteratED for more information on how together we can provide exceptional 21st-century education.

The era of ‘sage on the stage’ is dwindling in education. Teachers are no longer required to stand up and start talking in front of a group of students until the bell rings.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Here is a great break down charting the flow of project based learning. If you are a teacher or train people in anything this is a natural way to use naturally occurring problems to learn and give meaning and purpose to that learning.
