Create group focus

A story with practical dilemmas:

  • Motivates through identification and challenge
  • Stimulates knowledge construction through practical awareness
  • Creates involvement and focus
  • Makes use of everybody’s experience
  • Creates a quick understanding of current issues


Become storywise

A story with practical dilemmas:

  • Offers a compact and challenging learning moment
  • Gives immediate feedback and reward
  • Builds knowledge for better processing


Context-driven learning with a story as a starting point is probably the oldest teaching method in the world. Thanks to the story the topic comes to life. This makes it much more captivating and the student remembers everything much better.

The learning format STORYWISE has been developed to create short stories with active learning moments. It offers a confrontation with interesting, realistic and practical dilemmas which motivates the student to go deeper into the matter. The student becomes ‘wise’ (knowledge construction) during the ‘story’ (story experience).

Thanks to STORYWISE it is possible to share the most extraordinary situations and experiences in one story. When going through the story, the student is confronted with his/her own intentions. The sentence ‘It’s your intention to…’ implies intention. That stimulates the action : ‘What would you do?’ After choosing from three options there is specific feedback and a knowledge tree starts to grow. The student receives a reward for choosing the best answer.

In STORYWISE the images tell the story and animate the context.
