Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 7, 12:18 PM

Uri Hasson is the neuroscientist at Princeton University who several years ago did the research using MRIs showing the brain entrainment that happens between a storyteller and a listener.

 

This was breakthrough research into the neuroscience of storytelling. Now here is his latest TED talk where he shares his additional research on the topic.

 

Hasson talks about expanding the research beyond 1 storyteller to 1 listener to 1 storyteller to 5 listeners and what they discovered.

 

He also discusses more about the brain entrainment that happens, how meaning is created, and what happens when people from different cultures listen to the same story.

 

It's fascinating and you will want to take notes. In fact, you'll have to go slowly through the video because Hasson has a strong accent and it's sometimes hard to comprehend what he is saying. Kind of proving his points in a way.

 

So go grab this and bring it into your stash on the neuroscience of storytelling.

When someone tells us to share our personal story, we end up with the question: About what?!

 

Well here's a post to get you started about a number of stories you could tell. What I like is that they are unusual story prompts -- but easy to come up with stories about. And they definitely do the job of helping us tell our personal story.

 

So dig into this post and start using these prompts to craft some of your personal stories to have at the ready.

Five storytelling techniques to support literacy in the classroom | Storytelling | Scoop.it

Storytelling in the classroom can be a powerful way to support literacy. Children can be so absorbed in the tale, they are inspired to retell what they’ve heard to others, motivated to read it for themselves and encouraged to take it further and write their own parts or versions.
