This volume is the result of a 2016 research symposium sponsored by the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) focused on the growing theoretical areas of integrating story and narrative into educational design. Narrative, or storytelling, is often used as a means for understanding, conveying, and remembering the events of our lives. Our lives become a series of stories as we use narrative to structure our thinking; stories that teach, train, socialize, and create value. The contributions in this volume examine stories and narrative in instructional design and offer a diverse exploration of instructional design and learning environments.
Among the topics discussed:The narrative imperative: creating a story telling culture in the classroom.
Narrative qualities of design argumentation.
Scenario-based workplace training as storytelling.
Designing for adult learners' metacognitive development & narrative identity.
Using activity theory in designing science inquiry games .
Changing the narrative of school: toward a neurocognitive redefinition of learning.
Educational Technology and Narrative is an invaluable resource offering application-ready ideas to students of instructional design, instructional design practitioners, and teachers seeking to utilize theories of story and narrative to the ways that they convey and express ideas of instructional design and educational technology.
