Touching the Storyworld: Andrea Phillips for the Future of StoryTelling 2012

Published on Oct 3, 2012 by FoST org


The generation of media consumers coming of age today are not content to read or watch or listen to stories; they want to be a part of those stories. They want to change the course of a plot; they want to care more deeply about its characters; they want a sensory intimacy with the settings of a story, and with the characters themselves. These desires fundamentally alter the act of writing in the transmedia age. The writer must honor that participatory impulse, says transmedia creator Andrea Phillips, and must satisfy that craving for more layered contexts while also anticipating a whole new range of emotional responses. "You can paint with a different palette of emotions than if you were just working in flat media," says Phillips. When the reader or watcher becomes the participant in an alternate-reality game or transmedia narrative, new feelings, like guilt and pride, arise alongside conventional passive-media sentiments like empathy and catharsis. This film reveals Phillips's own journey of discovery in becoming a transmedia creator, and offers a key to unlocking the vast narrative potential of telling stories across multiple kinds of media.

Viewpoints: Teaching children to read

Viewpoints: Teaching children to read | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
Finding the best way to inspire children to become fluent readers has long been debated. The "look and say" approach, where children learnt to memorise words, dominated in the 1940s, 50s and 60s. But now the pendulum has swung towards phonics-based teaching, where children decode words by sounds.   The Department for Education says international evidence demonstrates that phonics is the most effective way of teaching early reading, and this year introduced a phonics reading test for six-year-olds. So what is the best way to teach children how to read? ...

Story(Us): The Power of Collaborative Storytelling: Jake Barton for the Future of StoryTelling 2012


Published on Oct 3, 2012 by FoST org


From a July Fourth fireworks celebration to the moon landing to 9/11, events experienced together create a shared bond. The account of those events get told again and again, and never the same way twice, by those who lived it. Stories have always evolved this way, from the Iliad to the assassination of President Lincoln, and these stories have always bound nations and peoples together. Today, though, online and mobile platforms, combined with a diverse and amplified media environment, have allowed everyday people to capture these experiences and share them with an audience on a scale never before possible, turning almost anyone into a potential generator of content. At the same time, other new technological platforms are giving professional storytellers—journalists, curators, artists, graphic designers, and others—more power than ever to harness those stories to create a larger, cohesive narrative. That act of harnessing and shaping many disparate individual narratives into something greater than the sum of its parts is what collaborative storytelling is. Collaborative storytelling, in turn, can become the foundation for an entirely new kind of interpretive experience like the one Jake Barton and his colleagues at Local Projects have created for the National September 11 Museum and Memorial in New York City.
