Empower Learners Through the Power of Story


Story is where we came from and where we’re going. It is in the story that we make meaning of our lives. Our story is what defines us, sets us apart and allows us to connect and build relationships with each other and to be known. Story is powerful and essential in creating learner-centered environments! The question is: In what ways can we empower our learners of all ages to share their story of who they are, how they learn and what they aspire to be so they can be known and valued?
