‘Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will learn!’
- Benjamin Franklin
Interactive learning enables children to be an active part of understanding and analyzing a subject at hand rather than just absorbing the information and memorizing it. Children are encouraged to participate in conversations and express their opinions and thoughts, thereby, stimulating their cognitive development.
On the contrary, passive learning solely relies on listening to the instructor’s notes leading to a lack of application and rote learning mechanisms.
Interactive learning hones critical thinking, which is primary to the development of analytical reasoning. A child who can explore an open-ended question with imagination and logic is learning how to make decisions, as opposed to regurgitating recorded information.
Research has proven that socialization is important in the process of personality formation. Through socialization, children begin to learn about sentiments like empathy and experience a range of emotions. They learn to trust, how to be generous, and the right way to sustain a relationship. Those children who are not given the opportunity, or encouraged to socialize, may end up being withdrawn and have problems getting along with others. Interactive learning nurtures socialization and prepares children on how to collaborate and work successfully in groups. Through a live setup, children learn to take turns, respect, help and applaud other participants, making them socially adept.

Virtual storytelling is an innovative, powerful mechanism to harness the power of technology to seamlessly integrate learning activities with stories to create more engaging and stimulating learning environments.
Through live, interactive storytelling methodology, storytellers continuously improvise to involve participants in the unfolding of the story and related activities as per children’s interests and development.
To summarise, digital live storytelling does not believe in the archaic ‘One Size Fits All’ thinking. On the contrary, in live storytelling, the storyteller continuously uses voice modulations, props, visuals to make the same story enjoyable and relatable for varying ages.
