Web 2.0 Storytelling: Emergence of a New Genre
EDUCAUSE Review Volume 43, Number 6, ISSN 1527-6619
A "story" has a beginning, a middle, and a cleanly wrapped-up ending. Whether told around a campfire, read from a book, or played on a DVD, a story goes from point A to B and then C. It follows a trajectory, a Freytag Pyramid--perhaps the line of a human life or the stages of the hero's journey. A story is told by one person or by a creative team to an audience that is usually quiet, even receptive. Or at least that's what a story used to be, and that's how a story used to be told. Today, with digital networks and social media, this pattern is changing. Stories now are open-ended, branching, hyperlinked, cross-media, participatory, exploratory, and unpredictable. This article describes Web 2.0 storytelling which picks up these new types of stories and runs with them, accelerating the pace of creation and participation while revealing new directions for narratives to flow.
