Narrative Strategies for Learning | Usable Learning | Digitized media | Scoop.it

by Julie Dirksen

 

"So this session is about pulling some of the specific strategies that fiction writers use to into learning scenarios.  There are a lot of other interesting ways to explore storytelling in terms of meta-structures, psychology and cultural constructs.  This isn’t that presentation (though I’ll probably do that one too, one of these days).

 

"This presentation is focused on specific strategies for making learning stories more interesting."

Jim Lerman's curator insight, May 22, 2013 4:40 PM

Lots of people talk about how important it is to tell a story when trying to inform, entertain, persuade, or teach someone something; but they usually don't tell you how to do that. Or, if they try to tell you, they don't do it very well.

 

Dirksen is not one of those people. She explains very well and this slide deck is a terrific distillation of a great deal of wise information. This is really good!

Why I choose this topic to be my thesis topic? When I first heard this topic, I found it very attractive. In this world full of digital information, how can we find good content we need. Later I found scoop.it and Robin Good which strengthen my view that content curation is so useful. Because I found many valuable information in his topic and it really saves me a lot of time.

"The more schools experiment with online learning, the closer we will get to taking online learning to scale and moving toward higher student completion and success rates in online programs. With the vast array of synchronous and asynchronous technologies available, students are able to collaborate online just as well as in face-to-face classes, when the right environment and tools are in place."

I don´t think you need a blog, I think is good to have a blog. The important thing is not the blog itself, the important thing is the message you want to give using it; the, you can give the message using the blog, but, you can give the same message directly, using social networks and plain text messages (without links). Many customers don´t want click, want the message.
