Campfire conversations, cave paintings, letters mailed across the sea — the tools and times have changed, but the human condition has not. We are made for story. Today, we have so many ways for students to share their stories; we move beyond “write it down” and diversify the how with digital options: blog, make a movie, write a multi-touch book, sing a song, share online. When we invite kids to tell their stories, we place our students at the center of curriculum and make it about them. Join in as we leverage the power of story in a digital age to benchmark time and change the future.
