How to Stop Telling the Same Old Stories in 5 Easy Steps | Visual.ly Blog | engaging learners | Scoop.it
  Great content begins and ends with great stories. Storytelling is one of the most powerful ways to engage and persuade an audience. But not if you’re telling the same old stories we’ve all heard a thousand times before. You need to tell truly original stories—otherwise, people will tune you out.   Here’s What Not to Do Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: A professor fills a jar with rocks and asks his students if they think it’s full… Or this one: A battleship spots a light from an approaching vessel and orders it to adjust course… Or this old classic: A young man comes upon thousands of starfish washed up on the beach and throws one back into the water. An older man scoffs, telling him he can’t possibly save them all… Just in case you haven’t heard these tired old tales (*spoiler alert*) the jar isn’t... keep reading

Six Principles of Effective e-Learning: What Works and Why by Ruth Clark : Learning Solutions Magazine

Six Principles of Effective e-Learning: What Works and Why by Ruth  Clark : Learning Solutions Magazine | engaging learners | Scoop.it

"For the past ten years, Richard Mayer and his colleagues at the University of California at Santa Barbara have conducted a series of controlled experiments on how to best use audio, text, and graphics to optimize learning in multimedia. Six media element principles can be defined based on Mayer’s work. What follows is a summary of these principles along with supporting examples, psychological rationale, and research."

I like these principles (and I like that there is some research to establish why they work)

Phil Turner's curator insight, September 19, 2013 7:00 PM

Not enough references, and not direct references, which is what my "yet to be convinced" colleagues are looking for ... but the principles are logical and probably good starting points for a bit of further reading and discussion in development workshops for professional development of higher ed teachers

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, September 22, 2013 1:13 PM

Take any e-Lesson — show it to five people and ask them what they think. My bet is you will get five different opinions about the quality of the courseware. But, wait! What if the five reviewers are educational “experts” — specialists with advanced degrees in training and education? Now you might expect a greater consensus. Based on my experience over the past three years reviewing courses with experts, I predict a little more agreement; but it’s not likely to be anything close to a consensus.

Adobe Voice: A Powerful Storytelling App - Class Tech Tips

Adobe Voice: A Powerful Storytelling App - Class Tech Tips | engaging learners | Scoop.it

#"Storytelling is a powerful way to inspire students, build community and give children a voice.  There are a few great apps that help students of all ages write and tell their own stories (Shadow Puppet, Toontastic) and a new app that I absolutely love is Adobe Voice.  This free iPad app is very user friendly and makes the storytelling process simple for children young and old.  Kids can add pictures, text, and even choose from different icons to bring their stories to life.  Adobe Voice has an easy recording feature for students to add their voice as narration.  There is a music library and a selection of themes for users to pick out and include in their final product."
