Story Written By: Loreta Tarozaite
The title is a quote by Kendall Haven that I heard at the Digital Story Association’s (DSA) inaugural conference April 8th, 2016. Kendall is the author of 34 books in which he writes about research on the power of storytelling. He went along saying that it depends how we personally interpret the stories we hear because we associate them with our personal experiences at the moment we hear the story. Cannot agree more with that. If we all read the same article, or a book, or watched the same movie or a video online, we’ll all come out with different takeaways, different favorite characters, different understanding of the same story. You can hear a short sound bite from Kendall in the video on the bottom of this post.
