Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds GoAnimate for Schools ?tag=nl As The New York Times brings new attention to VR, immersive journalism could drive not only changes in the media industry, but mainstream adoption of the technology. By the end of the day on April 25, 2015, the city of Bhaktapur, Nepal, like many other parts of the country, was in ruins thanks to a 7.8 earthquake. There's an 11-year-old boy in the Ukraine named Oleg who used think it would be cool if his school blew up, but when fighting with Russia broke out in his separatist village in the spring of 2014 and destroyed everything, he wasn't so keen on the idea any more. A mortar shell exploded on a populated street in Aleppo, Syria. Another day, another disaster. For decades, journalists have been trying to figure out how to better connect audiences to serious events that happen far, far away, and build empathy and understanding. Most recently, media organizations are turning to virtual reality as the possible next step toward that goal. The short history of news and virtual reality

School of Education at Johns Hopkins University-In A Single Bound: A Short Primer on Comics for Educators by Drego Little There is a long and well-documented history of prejudice against comics and what educators think they might represent. Despite this history, comics have a strong following among writers and other serious artists. Sadly, this admiration for comics and their creators has not been widespread among educators. There are many reasons for this, but the most prominent of them is that most teachers either don't know what comics do, or aren't familiar enough with the medium to make good choices. The Nuts and Bolts of Comics Comics are still not considered "reading" by too many educators; an attitude that persists even though when a student is reading a comic (especially a good one) he or she is actually reading on three different levels. Closure provides most of the action in comics. Narrative density enables an artist to say a tremendous amount with a single panel. Comics present complex stories and information in a format that often has on-board scaffolding for readers.

Visual Storytelling: Types, Tips And Tools For Effective Content Visual storytelling is the classic case of show and tell that is used on toddlers in elementary school. Children learn at a faster rate when they actually see and feel the object rather than learning about it in books. Similarly, we as adults perceive a visual image of a story far better through videos and pictures on the digital media. Take a look at Buzzfeed for example that uses creative visual storytelling in most of its articles.

The Influence of Visual Media on Literacy and the Literary Experience - UTPB Wiki By Linea Harris, Jonathan Holden, Daniel Dalton, and Desiree Martinez, with interview material by Chris Benavides So much research has been conducted concerning the effect that visual media in its electrical/electronic form has on literacy, and it is no wonder why. With the prevalence of such visual media today, terms such as "information highway" and "cloud" are used to describe the inordinate amount of information that is shared online and through other means. In the face of such a mass of visual imagery as a source of knowledge, the question arises, "Where does textual media find its place in our society today?" To understand this and the potential problems that have been discussed among researchers, we will explore the uses of visual media imagery, how such visual media relates and either supplements or interferes with textual media, and discuss with a university expert the issues concerning the interaction of visual and textual media.
