Web 2.0 Storytelling: Emergence of a New Genre

EDUCAUSE Review, vol. 43, no. 6 (November/December 2008)

I believe Web 2.0 storytelling is a great way of bringing real life stories to  the classroom. The websites that were hyperlinked throughtout the article made the storytelling method very pursuasive. I don’t know how many sites I looked at but most of them were great stories. I think anytime we can capture the past and present it to students in a way that makes it come to life then that media should be more utilized. Just think of the possibilities in education if we can get older generations to share their stories and have someone put it online. I would love to read about someone’s experience during the depression that wasn’t included in the history books. Great stuff…
