Storyteller and bridge builder

Storyteller and bridge builder | Transmedia Storytelling & Education | Scoop.it
When I examine the craft of the creator - or the storyteller, the producer or whatever other term you want to use – bridge building comes to mind. What we are, essentially, trying to do is build a bridge. It’s a bridge that is constructed between the stories and the content we’ve come up with…

Fan fiction in the Classroom: Field Notes from a Fanfic Writer Turned Educator

Fan fiction in the Classroom: Field Notes from a Fanfic Writer Turned Educator | Transmedia Storytelling & Education | Scoop.it

"Fan fiction can be a powerful classroom tool. It’s widely accessible and most kids love it. But when you introduce the concept of fan fiction in the classroom, you’re introducing more than the medium. You’re introducing them to an internet subculture, and they will need more than study and application of the genre."

Levar os media para a escola. Agenda de atividades de transliteracia

Levar os media para a escola. Agenda de atividades de transliteracia | Transmedia Storytelling & Education | Scoop.it
"A EMERGÊNCIA DA TRANSLITERACIA NUMA ERA DE CONVERGÊNCIA MEDIÁTICA
Esta é a quarta Agenda de uma coleção que pretende propor um conjunto de atividades que permita ou inspire a promoção da Literacia para os Media em instituições de aprendizagem, formal ou não formal. Esta publicação em particular surge no âmbito de um projeto europeu intitulado TRANSLITERACY - TRANSMEDIA LITERACY: Exploiting transmedia skills and informal learning strategies to improve formal education (GA 645238 / Horizon 2020 - Research and Innovation Actions). Trata-se de um estudo que envolve oito países, entre os quais Portugal, e que na Universidade do Minho foi desenvolvido no Centro de Estudos de Comunicação e Sociedade. Tendo por base uma metodologia mista, mas apostando sobretudo em métodos qualitativos, o projeto procurou estudar, analisar e compreender as competências que os adolescentes adquirem fora da escola, sobretudo com e através dos media, e produzir um kit de atividades dirigido a professores de modo a incentivar a integração dessas aprendizagens informais em contextos formais de aprendizagem. É neste quadro que surge esta Agenda, com 15 atividades e vários recursos para "Levar os Media para a Escola"."

OMG, what a great article by writer Ella Saltmarshe on the power of storytelling for change.

 

She makes 3 frames for business stories: stories as light, stories as glue, and stories as web. When you frame stories like this, it becomes a lot easier to leverage them for any kind of change effort.

 

Saltmarshe goes into detail with the 3 frames so readers come away with a more in-depth understanding of how the 3 work. Within the 3 frames are additional subsets.

 

The article is published in the Stanford Social Innovation Review, so you know the post has got substance. This is a powerful post you won't want to miss.

Say goodbye to the information age: it's all about reputation now  

Say goodbye to the information age: it's all about reputation now   | Transmedia Storytelling & Education | Scoop.it

"There is an underappreciated paradox of knowledge that plays a pivotal role in our advanced hyper-connected liberal democracies: the greater the amount of information that circulates, the more we rely on so-called reputational devices to evaluate it. What makes this paradoxical is that the vastly increased access to information and knowledge we have today does not empower us or make us more cognitively autonomous. Rather, it renders us more dependent on other people’s judgments and evaluations of the information with which we are faced."

Review: across & beyond – A transmediale Reader on Post-digital Practices, Concepts, and Institutions

Review: across & beyond – A transmediale Reader on Post-digital Practices, Concepts, and Institutions | Transmedia Storytelling & Education | Scoop.it

"TCS is an academic publishing cluster now based at Goldsmiths, University of London. It comprises the academic, peer-reviewed journals Theory, Culture & Society and Body & Society, as well as the Theory, Culture & Society Book Series. 

_____________

(...) the more urgent questions of being and becoming are necessary: what now? What then? What next? These questions are offered to readers as possible critical as well as historical positionings within a digital age, encouraging multiple perspectives of the same phenomenon.  

By my estimation, this is what is meant by the post-digital and its described “contingencies” (15). As a theoretical notion, it is clearly influenced by the field of media archaeology’s focus on media materialism as well as alternate, dynamic, and multitudinous understandings of temporality, space, and narratives. The post-digital also attempts to address critical infrastructure studies, which are more important than ever to media theorists, digital humanists, media artists, communication scholars, and information scientists—to anyone who is interested in relationships between technology and power, as well as how to mediate them."

Web 2.0 is Broken. It’s Time for a New Paradigm Shift

Web 2.0 is Broken. It’s Time for a New Paradigm Shift | Transmedia Storytelling & Education | Scoop.it

"The world wide web — the internet you, I and billions of others rely on — is broken. Defunct. If it were an elevator, there would be an Out of Order sign swinging from its doors. (...) Decentralized open source software can be vetted by anyone and used by anyone. It comes with no hidden surprises or privileged access. By encrypting and storing data on the blockchain, the reliance on a single point of failure — centralized databases under the control of one entity — is removed. Once we embrace decentralization, and start working together to make this model our default web setting, the rest will follow: the user-friendly OS, the users themselves, and with it the heightened privacy and security."
