Pastoral Romance

Pastoral Romance | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

Betty Jo Patton spent her childhood on a 240-acre farm in Mason County, West Virginia, in the 1930s. Her family raised what it ate, from tomatoes to turkeys, pears to pigs. They picked, plucked, slaughtered, butchered, cured, canned, preserved, and rendered. They drew water from a well, cooked on a wood stove, and the bathroom was an outhouse. 

 

Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "I eventually asked Betty Jo what she thought of her granddaughter’s notion of returning to the land. Betty Jo smiled, but was blunt: “Leave it. There’s nothing romantic about it.”

Learning by doing or through play has always been a successful method - today it's the same but in digital format and far more engaging - will it have better results than non digital story telling / teaching methods?

Katie Chase's curator insight, December 5, 2013 5:28 AM

Storytelling for games seems difficult because the original author has to come up with so many alternative endings. Whoever is playing the game hears and sees a story that is uniquely theirs. This type of interaction really does set gaming apart from other types of media, such as television and film. I believe this is what attracts people to games. –Aellise Czupryna

Sharrock's insight:

Fairy tales are violent and inappropriate for our kids (at least the old versions are)--prove otherwise. You need to find the stories themselves to support these story summaries though. I don't know if we can easily find them online. The reference sources are included in the webpage though. Could make for an interesting discussion in faculty meetings.

30 Storytelling Tips To Capture Your Students’ Attention | Digital Learning Environments | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Sharrock's insight:

from the website: "Stories don’t just work well for narratives; they can be used to illustrate scientific or mathematical processes as well. Take for example the difference between learning a formula, and the ability to solve that problem in the context of a real-life example. Stories bring information, knowledge, and truth to life."

The Future of Video Is About Learning How To Tell Great Emotional Stories

"...interviews with people from Vimeo, Adobe, Blackmagic design, Motionographer, Cinema 4D, Sehsucht, Mashable, Digital Bolex and many more."

Robin Good's curator insight, April 15, 2014 6:52 AM



In this SxSW set of video interviews captured by Wipster (a collaborative video review and approval service) with some of the "experts" in the online video publishing field, you can hear most of what you already know and expect from the future of video: 4K, real-time editing, effects, 3D, small screens and more. 

What instead emerges as the real challenge though, is to realize that no matter what kind of tools and services you use, the difficult part is to have a good story and to learn how to tell it on video.


Tools are great and easy indeed, but they don't make anyone a capable storyteller instantly. This is what we really need to work on.


No need to view all 12+ minutes of the video. Just check the first and the last interview in this clip and you will get the real meat.  



Insightful. Informative. 7/10

Utiles pour encourager les élèves à écrire et créer des histoires.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 23, 2014 12:49 PM

Using comic strips is one powerful way to get students excited and motivated about the writing act. Students love to interact with visuals and tools such as the ones listed below will empower them to do just that. Using these comic strip generators , students will get  to engage in conversations using cartoonic characters and build stories and share their works with each other.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 28, 2014 7:45 PM

I like these ideas! Teaching comic strip writing can be lots of fun!

MAKE BELIEFS COMIX! Online Educational Comic Generator for Kids of All Ages

Getting your kids into comic strips is easy. Just pick up a newspaper or visit a comic strip website likegocomics.com. Then, you can extend the educational value by helping them create a strip of their own. Some kids need only a blank piece of paper and pencil to churn out box after box. For those who need a prompt, you can enjoy the fun of creating one together. You’ll be surprised how easy it is. Try these ideas:

Draw a row of story boxes or print one from the Internet— try printablepaper.net. A few large boxes is best at first. Your child can work up to a grid when s»he’s ready for a longer sequence.Brainstorm with your young cartoonist. Will the characters be humans or animals? What emotions might they display—happiness, sadness, anger? Where does the story take place?Think about real-life situations to depict, such as a joke Dad told yesterday or a wacky thing that happened on the way to school. Move on to fantasy if your child wishes.You can either draw by hand or use a free online comic strip generator (like my site,makebeliefscomix.com). http://www.scholastic.com/parents/resources/article/parent-child/how-comic-strips-help-kids-learn-to-read-and-learn?utm_source=buffer&utm_campaign=Buffer&utm_content=bufferb0b31&utm_medium=linkedin#!

The Power of Self-Fulfilling Beliefs And How They Really Work

In psychology, there is a concept known as a self-fulfilling prophecy which describes how certain beliefs can influence our actions in a way that makes those beliefs actually come true.
Sharrock's insight:

This is amazing how the self-fulfilling prophecy can work in two directions in the expectations in yourself and the expectations you have for others. This message never gets old; it's a good reminder.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 18, 2013 7:37 PM

The fact William Jame is referenced in this article is important. It was his thinking that led to the psychology around the concept of self-fulfilling prophecy. We need to think differently.

David Hain's curator insight, April 19, 2013 2:42 AM

This is an important reminder, these beliefs are permanently at work with good and bad results.
