Amanda Dykes - Teachers as Story Tellers - I think teachers need to be turned from lecturers into story tellers. Also, some teachers think it is no longer ok to orally give info to students. But if a teacher tells the story, not spits out facts, students will not only better remember but have a better understanding of a concept. Using technology and basic digital story telling ideas that students use, teachers can demonstrate DST and share their knowledge of a given subject matter that can reach most learning styles.

Particularly useful for those who may have to work with the partially-sighted or with limited English language skills.
