|What do you get when you combine stories and technology? A better education.
Technology allows us to travel thousands of miles in a nanosecond. It also gives students the opportunity to interact with others around the world. In this new age of (age-old) storytelling, our master practitioners continue to leverage the Narrative 4 network in their classrooms. Recently, students in Tampico, Mexico and Floyd County, Kentucky exchanged stories (in both Spanish and English!), and just this week, 28 freshmen from Amity High School in Connecticut and 26 juniors from Ort Shapira school in Israel connected virtually.
“The students loved it. Reaching out to someone so far away brought about an immediate connection. It’s like bridges have been built,” says N4 Master Practitioner nominee and teacher at Ort Shapira, Taliah Nathanson.
