In play an adult can become like a child, fully absorbed in the here-and-now. Play, not work, brings us fully to life
Ariana Amorim's insight:

"Children know what is important in life: they know instinctively and effortlessly. For adults, it is hard work"

Karen Dietz's curator insight, October 18, 2013 10:19 AM

From Pratik Dholakiya, a guest author for Copyblogger, comes a great article on how to capture someone's attention for gaining readeres, customers and fans.


Many of the 7 tips connect with storytelling. In fact tip #2 is: tell stories!


Tip #1 is about headlines. I just wrote an article about how to title stories to entice people to read. Especially when shared digitally. As Bullas says, if the headline doesn't grab them they won't read your material. So headlines are critically important if you want folks to read your stories.


Tip #5 is all about being conversational. And that is critically important in your storytelling. No one likes reading material when you sound like a stuffed shirt :))


Tip #6 focuses on making your audience look good. When we think about this in story terms, it's making sure your customer is the hero of the story, not you.


All of the tips are solid. And there are quite a lot of good points here. So enjoy the discussion and the gems shared.

The variety of free applications for creating tweaked digital content that can be great for lessons keeps proliferating - here's yet another cool free tool!

ART THERAPY REFLECTIONS: Mandalas in Art Therapy

ART THERAPY REFLECTIONS: Mandalas in Art Therapy | Serious Play | Scoop.it
I use mandala making in therapy to help clients feel calm and centered, for self-expression and as a way to help people explore who they are in groups. The following photos are of mandalas made in a classroom showing how each person ‘saw’ themselves in the circle. They painted how much room they felt they took, how they felt their energy or self looked in the classroom and how they felt they fit in the whole. I have used this exercise as:1.    A device to explore group conflict2.    A visual representation for families in therapy3.    A device to work with bullying4.    A device to work with boundaries and shared space5.    A tool to explore aggressive, passive and assertive behavior.
