Students 3D Print Diorama of Ancient Chinese History | All3DP

Students 3D Print Diorama of Ancient Chinese History | All3DP | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it
There have been a few exhibitions featuring 3D printed artwork over the years. But none are quite like this miniature display created by a team of Chinese artists to showcase the country’s traditional culture.

Professor Nan Yu at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts has been leading a team of sculpture students to utilize 3D scanning and printing technologies for their latest creation. Together, the team created a display of the appointment of Tso Tsung-Tang, one of four important ministers of the late Qing Dynasty.

The finished creation pays tribute to Chinese tradition of ancient academy culture and the respect paid toward teachers.

The world of marketing is rapidly changing and video now reigns supreme as the best method of sharing your message via most social media channels. If you have not yet utilised video marketing as a means of generating leads for your business, it is time to seriously consider what this may be costing your business, and what the future impact will be of ignoring this medium. This article should be a real eye opener, and in addition to providing useful statistics, it provides you all of the information you need to get started and experience a level of success.

ASCD Express 11.20 - A Road Map for Creative Instruction

ASCD Express 11.20 - A Road Map for Creative Instruction | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it
Students who learn in a creative environment, are exposed to creative activities and assignments, and observe their teacher modeling creative thinking will become more creative thinkers (Sternberg & Williams, 1996). A creative learning environment that embraces students and engagement along with critical thinking and creative thinking skills is essential to student achievement (Boykin & Noguera, 2011, 2012; Marks, 2000, as cited in Jensen, 2013). To plan the instruction that matches your creativity nurturing classroom enviornment, first identify the nonnegotiables. The nonnegotiables consist of the curricular standards, the required content, and the skills that are the target of a lesson (Drapeau, 2004). Then, choose one of four roads on the Creativity Road Map or combine roads to intentionally integrate creative instruction with content.

What compassion looks like - 3 research-backed ways to show you're really listening. | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it
I was excited to see this finding because I teach compassionate listening as a skill in the Stanford Compassion Training. Students in the training learn to deliberately do exactly what the participants in this study were using to assess compassion.

1) The first step is what I call “listening with the whole body.” This means literally tuning in to the person who is speaking.  “Compassionate” body language includes:

Turning toward the speaker, not just with your head, but positioning your whole body to face the speaker.

Overwatch and the pleasure of transmedia narratives - Kill Screen

Overwatch and the pleasure of transmedia narratives - Kill Screen | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it
Before Winston, a glasses-clad gorilla scientist, was leaping across maps to crush his enemies in the chaotic multiplayer battles of Overwatch, he was merely a young ape with big aspirations and an affinity for peanut butter. But you wouldn’t know that from merely playing the game. You’ll find no calculated, story-driven campaign in Blizzard’s competitive team-based multiplayer shooter. Overwatch’s character-driven narrative is instead trickled elsewhere: in genuinely endearing animated shorts, character-focused one-off webcomics, and short website-bound character biographies. The latter-most isn’t uncommon within videogames, the second less so, and the first is the most uncommon of them all, the three…

It is a great idea for advanced learners, very convinient for teachers who are pursuing creative writing, since it improves the language skills but at the same time gives a burst of innovation to the class and grouping techniques.
