  3. 3. Once upon a time … … a somewhat interesting, well, slightly interesting woman wrote a book with some friends. It was a big book. A long book. Actually, it was more than one book. Image:
  4. 4. Once upon a time … It was not an interesting book. Not a beautiful book. Not a story book. Not a funny book. Not a spiritual book. Not an important book. Image:
  5. 5. Once upon a time … And that slightly interesting woman didn’t want the BIG, long, multi-volume book to be any of those things, because what it tried to teach WAS important. Image:

  10. 10. Storytelling for Learning “There is consensus in literature that storytelling offers a highly natural and powerful means to convey, learn, and retain information. A variety of educational researchers offer learning theories that support storytelling from a number of perspectives including brain-based learning theories, experiential learning theories, reflective learning theories and transformational learning theories. Several studies are available that underscore the ability of learners to learn, retain and retrieve information when presented in a story format. Furthermore, neuroscience research reports that the human brain is naturally wired to receive and remember every human experience within a structure of a story.” (J. Eck, 2006. <http://www2.uwstout. edu/content/lib/thesis/2006/2006eckj.pdf> ) Images: | head |
