Let's start with a story!Enjoy "The Useless Tree", told by Joke van Himbeek.
Introduction to the moduleAsk anyone what they really remember from a lecture, a guided tour or from their school days - often it's the story. Stories seem to make some kind of memory mark in the brain, probably because of their imagery. Teachers, lecturers, guides, nature guides, museum people, they all have good reason to use storytelling.
The knowledge material woven into a story is easier to remember. Oral storytelling is a pictorial, concrete language that speaks directly to the heart and allows the listener not only to understand but also to experience what is being conveyed. Inner images are created and the listeners feel involved, touched, co-created. Their senses are also opened to absorb more factual knowledge. Therefore, oral storytelling has always been a tool to illustrate knowledge content, to process conflicts and problems, to teach and socialise, to create empathy, to develop self-confidence, to entertain and amuse.
Some thoughts on oral storytelling
We mean that is a misunderstanding. In the oral narrative there are tools that no other media has and that reach the listeners on a deeper and more personal level. It is a medium that is easily accessible because technology consists of ourselves; of our voice and body. It can be used in most contexts: in family and social life, in school and at work, in community and association life and so on. It can be used for different purposes: entertainment, teaching, outlook on life, marketing, performing arts and more. For those who want to develop their story, there is an ocean of stories where she can choose what suits her.
