The Psychology of What Makes a Great Story

The Psychology of What Makes a Great Story | Creativity in education | Scoop.it

"The great writer's gift to a reader is to make him a better writer."

 

“Stories,” Neil Gaiman asserted in his wonderful lecture on what makes stories last, “are genuinely symbiotic organisms that we live with, that allow human beings to advance.” But what is the natural selection of these organisms — what makes the ones that endure fit for survival? What, in other words, makes a great story?

21st Century Skills are so last century! | Creativity in education | Scoop.it

The new mantra, the next big thing, among educators who need a serious sounding phrase to rattle around in reports is ‘21st Century Skills’. I hear it often, almost always in some overlong, text-heavy, Powerpoint presentation at an educational conference, where collaboration, creativity and communication skills are in short supply.

Interesting point being made here: the talk of creativity is actually "top-down, hierarchical" thinking with the big cheeses telling people what to do and how to think.

We often tend to carry on with our typical teaching methods, and sometimes believe that the trainer needs to stay in charge of the learning event. It can be useful to check out this list... stop and evaluate the different options out there that shift the weight from teacher to learner. Surely there is a part of the learning objective that could be covered better through a learner centered approach.
