What’s the Difference Between a Flipped Classroom and Flipped Learning? | My favourite ESL Resources | Scoop.it

Why do I characterize this explanation as a flipped classroom and not flipped learning? Because, contrary to popular belief, these terms are not synonymous. Yet nearly every article written on these topics mistakenly equates them.

15 Tips For Facilitating Online Discussion | Edudemic

15 Tips For Facilitating Online Discussion | Edudemic | My favourite ESL Resources | Scoop.it
Facilitating discussions between students is one of those things that is infinitely easier when you’re teaching in a physical classroom rather than online. When the students are all in one room, discussions happen more naturally. Facilitating the same type of productive, useful discussion when teaching online is more of a challenge.

The Science of Storytelling

The Science of Storytelling | My favourite ESL Resources | 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....

Maria Persson's curator insight, September 30, 2014 6:49 PM

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!
