Stories provoke curiosity and wonder… curiosity and wonder evoke learning.
Why is Storytelling so important to educators?
Neuro-science has discovered that our brains are wired to organize, retain and access information through story. Teaching through story means that students will be able to remember what is taught, access that information, and apply it more readily. Story aids memory because it puts information into a meaningful context, to which other information can be “attached.” Storytelling lays down the narrative or contextual track where knowledge can reside. It is storytelling that creates and maintains connections between isolated pieces of information.
