Editorial Statement For This Collection:

Thank you for visiting this curation of articles on business storytelling. I've chosen them because they actually make a contribution to our knowledge and wisdom about stories, show us how to apply stories to growing our businesses, or give valuable how-to tips.


I weed out all the junk. And besides, who needs another post in why storytelling is important?? Where's the beef?? We want the meat!


I'm the author of the bestselling book Business Storytelling For Dummies (with Lori Silverman) and an original in the field of business storytelling. Based on my 20+ years of biz story experience, (plus a PhD in Folklore) I've written reviews of each article to share what I like best, what you can get from reading the article, or what may be missing in the article.


I'm now joined by other top business story professionals in the field who are also curating on this site: Jim Signorelli, Madelyn Blair, Lianne Picot, and Kathy Klotz-Guest.

 

How To Find A Topic: Click on the Filter icon above (look for the 'funnel' shape), and view the tags. Select one that interests you, or type in a keyword in the search box. All the articles with that tag or keyword will appear.

 

I may occasionally review an article that I think is problematic as a way to educate us all, although most I will simply pass over. If you wonder if I've seen an article that is not included here, send me a message and I'll respond.


How To Suggest An Article: If you find an article you think I'll be interested in, click the 'Suggest' button above, past the URL of the article, and I will receive it. Or write me a comment with the URL by clicking on 'Reactions' at the bottom of any article. You will see where can post a comment, which I will also receive.

I trust you find many great insights and tips here. Many thanks for visiting and enjoy the articles!


And I hope you will also visit my website for more tips and tools, and to sign up for my newsletter to receive your free "What The Heck Is A Story?!" guide. Don't forget to connect with me on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, too. See you around the storytelling 'hood.

Drama Circles: Cooperative Learning FUN!

Drama Circles: Cooperative Learning FUN! | Changing Education System | Scoop.it

Have you ever had your students do a Drama Circle? It's kind of like "I Have Who Has?" but students act out their parts instead of reading them. Jennifer Runde shared her ideas as a guest blogger on Corkboard Connections and also offered a Fairy Tales Drama Circle freebie for you! This is a great back-to-school activity to get kids to break down barriers and learn to relax and have fun with their peers. (Grades 3 - 6)

The Psychology of Storytelling: 10 Proven Ways to Create Better Stories (and Why Stories Sell)

The Psychology of Storytelling: 10 Proven Ways to Create Better Stories (and Why Stories Sell) | Changing Education System | Scoop.it
The #1 trait of a persuasive story is how “engaging” the story is.

There are a million writing blogs that will go on and on about how to craft amazing stories, but is any of that (potentially good) advice backed up by research? In fact, there is an additional study conducted by Green & Brock that addresses just what makes a story engaging. Here’s what they found:

 

Wow!! My entire review just disappeared! Well -- go read this great article anyway :)

 

Here is what to pay attention to: all the solid tips -- based on research -- on how to create better stories. They are great. Particularly modeling, irony, imagery, and going beyond the digital campfire. There's lots more to this article that what I have mentioned here.

 

So go read it. In the meantime, I'll chat with the Internet Powers That Be to hunt for the original review I wrote in whatever black hole it has found itself in! Ay yi yi ....

carldowse's curator insight, July 10, 2013 7:11 AM

Edmodo provides a simple to set-up, easy to use virtual learning environment which is especially suited to smaller groups. It's a hosted service (unlike Moodle) and works quite well on mobile devices. If you're thinking of offering a blended learning package to your learners then it's a good place to start.

Anne-Mart Olsen's curator insight, July 10, 2013 7:12 AM

I found that edmodo was particularly useful, as student easily identified with the platform.

Angel Bolton's curator insight, March 12, 2015 8:53 AM

The Social and Emotional Benefits of Being Weirdly Creative

The Social and Emotional Benefits of Being Weirdly Creative | Changing Education System | Scoop.it

With the vast majority of my students, I am truly facilitating big chunks of their learning by focusing them on diverse artistic expressions of their knowledge. They do the expressing, not me. And because I am not commanding them, I think they like me better. I know I like me better.
