Storytelling is a life-skill. It is the root of any subject, it transforms a learner's skills past just knowing facts about something.
It is the skill that helps thought flow and problem solving, a way to present something new and original, a lens through which to view and change the perspective.
That's how Scribeasy helps creative writing in schools, and what we focus on in our workshops.
Learning playfully, we help children to process ideas by thinking about the thinking. So regardless of ability (dyslexia, dysgraphia, fear of the blank page), we empower children with techniques that harness the imagination as a foundation for entrepreneurship, self-awareness, and self-direction in life.
Responding to random images, making a picture is a powerful trigger for ideas. Using our web-app in combination with creative techniques Scribeasy is an inclusive way to encourage and tease out a story. A young writer learns how to analyse the ideas and make connections with where the ideas may spring. Often a combination of responses that is metaphorical, abstract and instinctive, known and unknown.
We run story writing workshops that unlock and help children make new discoveries - topics and themselves. Scribeasy fosters curiosity and the way to apply creative ways that weave information together to craft a fantastic story.
