The BS of Storytelling

The BS of Storytelling

keynote presentation for 2015 Computer Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) conference, June, Denver

Storytelling, you know the metaphors- cave paintings, campfires. There are all kinds of ways I could describe them, and the BS is not the BS you may be thinking of. Rather than defining, constraining storytelling, I share my experiences of creating digital stories and teaching to others of what "works" as elements, with suggestions how you can think of it as more than just a magic spice you sprinkle on your work.
