"Storytelling" is a long time resident of the charts of educational ideas. As a topic of workshops and presentations (I've done plenty), books (none for me), TED Talks (definitely not), the word to me conjures up the idea of performance. Plus my own internal conversation-- "I'm not a storyteller". Peel away the connotations of campfires, cave drawings, and performers on a stage, the elements of storythinking are much more important to me than the show. A hook of interest, the shape of a narrative, a character to care about, suspension of belief, using less, media metaphors are story techniques that you can integrate into your work as educators. While technology provides plenty of tools to tell stories, more compelling is what they afford us to practice and develop our own skills of making and incorporating story not only into teaching, but many forms of expression. I will share my own experiments in improvisation (pechaflickr), visual storytelling (Five Card Flickr Stories), a method hidden within a list of tools (50 Web Ways to Tell a Story), and online teaching (ds106) -- not as magic answers but perhaps a way of thinking about story elements beyond the performance aspect.

  • 45. Participating in ds106 eliminated my fears—- my fears about my abilities, my fears about the online community, my fears about technology, and my fears about sharing ideas. blog.neverthesameriver.com/final-movie-my-ds106-adventure-spring-2012/
  • 46. ds106 has given this me the conviction that I, at 72, can make videos, that tell my story beautifully, thoughtfully, and truthfully. The community aspect gives me the security that, no how busy I am with other things, I can always "drop into" ds106 and continue to learn more. margaretherrick.com/blog/
