Digital Storytelling using "The Fun Factor"


What is the fun Factor?


"Play will be to the 21st century what work was to the last 300 years of industrial society - our dominant way of knowing, doing and creating" Quote from Pat Kane, in Pink pg 193

"Ample evidence points to the enormous health and professional benefits of laughter, light-heartedness, games and humour. There is time to be serious of course. But too much sobriety can be bad for your career and worse for your general well-being. In the Conceptual Age, in work and in life, we all need to play" Pink pg 66

How do I make a video about my topic?


For this theme you can use your imagination to invent ways that play and fun can be used in your topic.
  • Can you invent a game or a series of skits that communicate the meaning and/or evolution of your topic?
  • Can you invent a more powerful form of learning about your topic rather than just reading a wiki page?
  • Compare how this trend supports entertainment and gaming around the world?
  • How does your topic relate to how we have fun in our various societies now and in the future.

These are from your imagination! Don't be limited to these -- be creative and most of all HAVE FUN! Your video should be FUN!!!!
