Storytellers have more fun.

Storytellers have more fun. | Serious Play | Scoop.it
“Great stories happen to those who can tell them.” —Ira Glass

 

Interesting people often lead surprisingly ordinary lives, but they are not ordinary. What sets them apart is their ability to tell a good story.


Everyday storytellers weave the ordinary and spectacular into a larger narrative and invite us to follow along. Like a good stand-up comic, they’ve trained their eyes and ears to find meaning and humor in life—the inconsistencies, eccentricities, and injustices that make up our world—and to convey those observations in a way that helps us make new discoveries ourselves.

5 Awesome Improv Moves

5 Awesome Improv Moves | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"The greatest part of improv is it's organic. The basic idea of a scene might work one night and completely bomb the next. So in all reality there are no "perfect moves" or "scenes that work every time". This list is composed of scenes or moves that I personally enjoy seeing almost all the time."

Rachel Scott's curator insight, March 8, 2013 9:57 PM

Visual effects, lighting, sound, costume design and props are all valuable technology skills in the digital and design technology strand as well as valuable creative skills for students to “Describe how people use different information systems safely to meet personal and family communication and recreation needs”. Students use these technological skills to encourage them to design and create constructive industries which are often exhibited through drama and dance.

 

What an amazing way of allowing Year 1 students to seek past their own imaginations and design and innovate a creative drama performance in which they would design the costumes and props for and decide as a class what type of sound effects and lights they wish to use as well as adding a recording element to produce their own play. The students might also decide to advertise their production and integrate the personal and family communication needs of the curriculum by sending out invitations for the production and creating a packaging in which the invites would be sent out in. What a fun way of teaching the technology curriculum but in an active and influential way.
