Compassion is an important lesson to learn, both in and out of school

Compassion is an important lesson to learn, both in and out of school | Transmedia 4 Kids: Creating Content For Children | Scoop.it

Routines and preparedness are important for planning a child’s education, but, in reality, they do not always go according to plan. Children and parents must come together on core values in the between stages of life to prepare children for school.

 

Compassion is one value that is the most valuable of all in 2011. To help a child experience and understand compassion is key. Children do not always show compassion on the playground when someone gets hurt, or in the classroom when a classmate has trouble answering questions. As parents and teachers, it is our job to model compassion and to teach children that every individual is unique. By Windy Evans

WHAT IS TRANSMEDIA ACTIVISM

But even more interesting is the door transmedia storytelling opens up for social change cause outreach. Nonprofits and creators of social change media have a challenge in making their content “sticky” and, in a crowded field with limited funding or distribution channels, it takes significant resources and expertise to create audience awareness and inspire action. There is a real and distinct opportunity for activists to raise awareness and influence action by distributing content through a multiplatform approach, particularly in which people participate in media creation.

Looking at this issue in the simplest of terms, “transmedia activism” is one of the best ways to have people connect to a cause, by exposing them to a variety of media properties over various distribution channels—which opens up avenues for dialogue and provides an audience an educational experience about workable solutions—and then working with the most creative and engaged audience segment to facilitate the creation of their own content that further explains the cause and inspires action around it.

Nonprofit Tech 2.0 Blog :: A Social Media Guide for Nonprofits | Transmedia 4 Kids: Creating Content For Children | Scoop.it
The rise of the Social Web in recent years has dramatically changed how your supporters consume and share your nonprofit’s blog content. Odds are, if your blog has not been redesigned in the last few years, then it’s time to consider a relaunch. Just a few years ago multiple-column blogs with numerous widgets and plug-ins ruled the design aesthetic of the day. Today, however, a much simpler design of two columns with more pictures and videos, larger text, and less widgets i.e., clutter and distractions, allow for an easier and more focused consumption of your nonprofit’s key messages and calls to action.
