Being able to explore human behaviour and cultural differences through stories has always fascinated me. So when I listened to a webinar involving Pat Kenny, a national e-learning manager from the Health Service Executive, that discussed using storytelling in e-learning it, it made me think. According to Clarke & Rossiter, in adults there are three ways to learn through stories: stories heard, stories told and stories recognised.

Here is how I interpret each one:

The idea of storytelling for leadership and business is generating a lot of interest these days, as it well should. Stories are one of the most powerful ways to communicate. Stories can be memorable and meaningful. They’re immensely useful – whether you want to lead people, market your business, or just get some laughs. The best writers read a lot, and the best storytellers pay close attention and listen to the stories around them. As Shawn says in the video above, just because people are talking, it doesn’t mean it’s a story! Now, we do the “Story Radar” exercise, in advance of the program, and it is so effective! So what do you listen for? A timeA placeDialogueUnanticipated events Did you notice the story that Shawn told in the video?


Siti. 34 GREAT TRANSMEDIA STORYTELLING RESOURCES. Transmedia storytelling can be integrated into education, marketing, social change and other areas in a myriad of ways, but one thing it always offers--regardless of the arena--is choice. Telling stories in different forms on different platforms opens the door to produce complex reflections, to take classic linear methods of expression and weave them into the tapestries of unique observations and understanding. Rather than following the traditional path of beginning, middle, climax, ending, the story creator and/or reader is provided with the freedom and opportunity to devise multiple outcomes. As mentioned in another blog I wrote for (Transmedia and Teaching Native Multitaskers, 4/13/12), transmedia narratives touch on many areas in education on a global scale.

To help you navigate the often baffling labyrinth of its definitions and applications, I have assembled a list of 34 great transmedia storytelling resources below.

Resurrecting Multimedia from the mire of Transmedia

And when the topics of discussion are screen-production, screen-media, technology and narrative, words can fall out of fashion very quickly. Even those words that begin with clear intentions and a desire to be useful descriptors, can quickly be hijacked and malformed into contestants for the ongoing game of buzzword bingo. ‘Transmedia’ is just such a word. With the term ‘Trans’ simply meaning ‘to move’, the notion of Transmedia as “narratives that move across different media-forms”, it’s a perfectly apt description. Yet the term has been so absorbed by advertising and marketing-gurus and conjoined with the word ‘campaign’ as a means by which you can sell more Shit to People, that it’s a word quickly losing its lustre to many (myself included).

As synonymous as they are with one another, story and narrative are far from being the same. When deciphering between the two, one phrase says it all – Without a perfect narrative the story is irrelevant. Narrative invites, story evokes There’s no doubting that storytelling is an artform.

As a professional copywriter, and former screenwriter, I’ve always had to be brave with my words – to understand what they needed to do, to shape them around this meaning and action. This is where the seemingly subtle but invaluable differences between Invite and Evoke come into play. Narrative is the participation Narrative in any form is a signpost to meaning. You aren’t just invited along for the ride, you determine the outcome with an active, evolving process of decision making and organic engagement.
