5 Science Resources For, Well, Science Teachers ~ TeachThught

5 Science Resources For, Well, Science Teachers ~ TeachThught | immersive media | Scoop.it

by Dawn Casey-Rowe

 

"Truth is often stranger than fiction, and in the case of current events, there are so many science topics on the forefront of policy and society that at times it might seem that it is a script for a sci-fi movie. Everything from global warming, natural disaster, cloning, GMO, fracking debates, invasive species, medical ethics, and geopolitical issues–science is everywhere in news, politics, and world events. A lot of it is exciting if you stop a moment for consideration.

 

"This week’s Learnist feature is about science–especially weird science, which will attract the young and old alike."

The Science of Storytelling

The Science of Storytelling | immersive media | Scoop.it

"A good story can make or break a presentation, article, or conversation. But why is that? When Buffer co-founder Leo Widrich started to market his product through stories instead of benefits and bullet points, sign-ups went through the roof. Here he shares the science of why storytelling is so uniquely powerful."
