Storytelling and narrative teaching approaches are known to help improve verbal and communication skills in the mother tongue and/or in a foreign language. It also impacts imagination, creativity, social and civic competences, values, intercultural understanding, cultural awareness and expression. But specifically for adult education, introducing storytelling techniques offers a set of tools for inclusion.
Storytelling offers bottom-up narrative art, it creates a community of co-creation, it facilitates to hear and to be heard, it lowers the threshold to art, it stimulates a constructivist meaning making process, it helps create metaphors to by-pass the unspeakable… Stories are heritage, they are gateways to heritage and to other cultures.
