Good stories – great e-learning

Scenario based learning is a term that has been used significantly to enhance the learning experience.

Stories always capture the audience.

Seven basic stories
The quest
The tragedy
The comedy
The rebirth
Overcoming the monster
Voyage and return
Rags to riches

A story always has a Beginning, Middle and End

Beginning – The context is set for the learning experience, describing the learning (or perhaps the character) objectives

Middle – (the instruction) may entail a series of tasks (the complications or obstacles) that ultimately seek to lead to an extension in knowledge (the climax)

End – (the plenary) rounds off the learning experience, perhaps with a summary to reinforce what has been learnt (the moral of the story)

An Idea – how about using the filmstrip to tell your story.
