Learning through fairy tales

A collaborative storytelling model

Once upon a time… this sentence brings us right into the magic wonderland of fairy tales where everything is possible, where dreams come true and where our hope, our engagement and our involvement are rewarded with a happy ending. Human beings love fairy tales, and adults are not an exception! Fairy tales are about each of us and our individual experiences and knowledge, our fears, wishes and dreams. Cinderella – that are we! – because we all know the feeling of being unjustly treated by others…

Since fairy tales give us the opportunity to become part of the story itself, the question arises why we do not use fairy tales in order to learn with others – by exchanging ideas, knowledge and experiences within a constructive and motivating learning environment.

The webinar gives an insight into a collaborative storytelling model and the claim – namely that stories and in more particular fairy tales are a motivating and open minded way to learn together with others through social exchange. For that reason the webinar contains not only a presentation of the model and some theoretical aspects but also the opportunity for participants to interact and to participate actively in collaborative learning with fairy tales.
