The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, April 2, 2014 11:57 PM


Mona Shattell:  "How does one go about an interdisciplinary project spanning art and science? How might this look? we set out to explore how mental health advocacy, video game design, and documentary filmmaking could come together to enhance understanding and fight stigma about mental illness."

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, April 3, 2014 4:07 PM

Eager to learn more about 'For the Records' and it's dynamics--interactivity, audience participation, multiple threads--and where the gaming elements intersect with the other elements.  All the things that create a rich sense of narrative transportation and multi-sensory experience may go a long way to shift perceptions through empathy.

Brad Tollefson's insight:

Initially, the production team thought that episodes should be kept short because the audience the show targets is primarily watching on mobile. But Parks has noticed that the completion rates for the YouTube videos have been “very high,” so longer episodes are quickly becoming a priority...

A great way to teach using trains edit storytelling.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's comment, May 6, 2013 10:15 AM
I love Word dictionary updates as tiny markers of substantive change--I had to add 'cocreation' and 'cocreator' to mine along with transmedia. Interestingly, it already knew 'prosumer.'

Maniandr:  "Hank Green and Bernie Su explore the power of storytelling in multiple forms of media; attracting younger generations to this canonical text. The modern day adaptation is by no means a replacement of Jane Austen’s eloquent words, rather this approach complements the novel through reader engagement and fostering divergent paths of thinking."

Carmenne Kalyaniwala-Thapliyal's curator insight, October 18, 2013 1:06 AM

Can't help wishing I had found this when I was teaching Pride and Prejudice to my 9th graders. They would definitely have enjoyed it and it would've added a new spark to classroom discussions.
