Session: Connected storytelling
Storytelling is one of the oldest methods of teaching and learning. Stories have been passed down since the beginning of mankind. First by mouth, then by text, more recently radio and moving image. They carry lessons, emotion, wisdom, religion and entertainment. They enable us to see ourselves in other worlds as well as in the shoes of another. Stories are a lens in which can make sense out of confusion, help others see a new frame of mind, and even carry data.
So what happens to this ancient human art with the advent of connected objects?
Let’s explore how modern day storytellers are not just using but making technology to impart messages. From the platform that enables digital stories to be realised, to the objects who become interactive story tellers themselves. Add data collection and privacy and things start to get complicated. How does a storyteller act as an artist, creating interactive experiences while being responsible?
This session will present cases from 4 pioneers in this craft followed by a panel conversation with the audience.
