Communicating on behalf of a brand can be tricky business. A decent idea once passed through the brand’s filter and massaged and molded to hit key messaging targets can come out the other side a shell of its possible self.

How many of your customer facing people are trained to be able to ask the right questions to get the whole story before we jump in and state our "opinions" of what is going on.

 

Whether in sales and/or technical support, one of the worst things we can do is "tell" a customer where they are at. We do not know without asking questions first. Remember the saying, "There is more to the story than meets the eye".

 

NOTE: Read the input from Karen Dietz on how using questions helps to "evoke the customer's story". http://sco.lt/6wO3QP

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 25, 2013 6:59 PM

This is quite a meaty article on ways B2B -- or any organization -- can capitalize on visual storytelling.


There are lots of ideas and examples here to get you started. And great advice, too. The SlideShare doc has good next steps to implement. And for the next 90 days, the entire presenation from the conference that generated this article is available free online.


The stats that are shared I've seen around a lot, and curated an article on the chart in this article when it first came out a few months ago. But the data is still valid!


I love the tip: show how your product lives in the world. Don't just show the product or service -- show it in action, with real live people.


There is a lot more here and tons of links to click through for more info. Have fun exploring and getting your visual storytelling together or upgraded.

Students Speak Up in Class, Silently, via Social Media

Students Speak Up in Class, Silently, via Social Media | Instructional Technology - TLC | Scoop.it

Skeptics — and at this stage they far outnumber enthusiasts — fear introducing backchannels into classrooms will distract students and teachers, and lead to off-topic, inappropriate or even bullying remarks. A national survey released last month found that 2 percent of college faculty members had used Twitter in class, and nearly half thought that doing so would negatively affect learning.

Ken Morrison's comment, March 4, 2013 3:53 AM
I have used Twitter in a few classes. Students say they like it, but I fail to use it more often. It worked great as a break when I had two-hour classes. I would tell students to tweet about something new that they learned in the last hour and then take a break and/or questions. I would use break time to review the tweets via the common hashtag. We could start the next hour with a student-generated review and Q/A session. I was happy with the results, solid instruction & unscientific 'feeling' of the classroom.
Terry Doherty's curator insight, March 10, 2013 5:43 PM

Love the idea of engaging students to think freely ... without embarrassment to them or interrupting the teaher!

Jane Dunnewold's comment, February 23, 2013 10:14 PM
I like the validation of being authentic over being perfect. If we could move this direction in more arenas social, business and otherwise, I think it would result in a more grounded, settled environment, and in that environment, human beings thrive.
Dr. Karen Dietz's comment, February 24, 2013 3:08 PM
I so agree Jane. Creativity, art and innovation cannot thrive in a culture of perfectionism. This reminds me of many traditional arts where imperfection is built into the final work. Imperfections in the work actually lead us to be more curious about it -- always a good thing!

‘The future of storytelling’ media mindset bias | Limor's Storytelling Agora

Any research project that comes up with a conclusion compacted into a couple of words all beginning with the same initial letter, instantly provokes in me the...

 

Ahhhh -- here's another great blog post about the nature of storytelling that teases out key distinctions between storytelling, technology, and media.

 

Today these 3 terms get lumped together in ways that are sometimes quite odd. Statements like, "with technology and media the very nature of storytelling is changing and evolving"  doesn't pass the smell test. Media and channels might be changing -- but storytelling itself?? Hmmm.

 

Here my colleague Limor Shiponi delves into a recent research report about the future of storytelling to show us the fallacies in the reports assumptions. And ask questions like, "What are we doing??!"

 

Now why should you care? Because no one wants to get sucked into hype that is creating distortions and false promises.

 

Oh, don't get me wrong -- I am just as excited about the future of storytelling in business as others. I just want to play with eyes wide open. Otherwise we'll all experience false starts, failures, and misdirection that will eat up time, money and effort. I'd rather be smarter going into a storytelling project than ending up disappointed!

 

So read this article and let me know what YOU think. It is not a very long article, but it is throught provoking.

 

What insight would you contribute to what Limor has begun? I look forward to hearing from you.

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | Instructional Technology - TLC | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse  

Share it.
