The Science of Storytelling

The Science of Storytelling | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) | Scoop.it

Many studies show us that our brains prefer storytelling to facts.When we read facts, only the language parts of our brains work to understand the meaning. When we read a story, the language parts of our brains and any other part of the brain that we would use if we were actually experiencing what we’re reading, light up.This means that it’s easier for us to remember stories than facts. Our brains can't make major distinctions between a story we’re reading about and something we are actually doing....

Something about telling our stories can often keep us in loops of despair and darkness but in sharing them these clouds can often lift and lead to empowerment and engagement with the world around us again!

 

This is a great infographic suggesting how physiological aspects are affected by storytelling...believe it or not - do the research and make your own mind up!

 

Commercial aspects aside and the idea of branding, how could this concept work in  educational environments? Need to give this more thought...ideas anyone - very welcome!

Research: How Video Production Affects Student Engagement

TedX recently commissioned a study of nearly 1,000 videos, segmenting them out by by video type and production style, and discovered this among their other findings:

  1. Shorter videos are more engaging. Engagement drops after 6 minutes.
  2. Videos with a more personal feeling are more effective than high-fidelity studio recordings.
  3. Videos in which the instructor speaks quickly and with high enthusiasm are more engaging.
  4. Khan-style tablet drawings are more engaging than power point slides.

App makes bulletin boards come alive at Green school - New Jersey Herald

App makes bulletin boards come alive at Green school - New Jersey Herald | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) | Scoop.it

"The bulletin boards throughout Green Hills School may look normal — with colorful paper and pictures covering them — but hover a tablet or smartphone loaded with a special app over them and they turn into learning tools, complete with videos and interactive lessons.

 

“I didn't want there to be all these passive areas throughout the school,” Superintendent John Nittolo said. “I wanted there to be chances for people to interact, to manipulate, to find info that changes so it's not static.”

 

The brainchild of Louis Rossi, the school's mathematics and ThinkSTEM coach, each bulletin board — technically known as “Augmented Reality Interactive Boards” — gives students an opportunity to learn away from the classroom."

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 27, 12:06 AM

Use of QR codes and Aurasma can create an augmented reality where students simply need to hold their iPad up to an image or code to receive information. These are great for scavenger hunts and any activity students need to gather ideas, but here is an idea to use them with bulletin boards. This is hopefully something we can do in the Library soon!
