J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, March 8, 2014 11:56 AM

I would add collaborative curating of web content on a wiki for a fourth strategy.  Students could be engaged over a period of time, evaluating articles related to the topic or theme. Problem Based Learning is making a comeback with the advent of the Core.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, April 16, 2014 5:09 PM
My message: yes! Everyone should be supporting speaking & listening. Our culture has a slowly dying sense of civility. Improved communication practices would go far to turn this slow death around. Unfortunately, though I love technology, it does little to advance meaningful face-to-face discourse. Modeling responsible dialogue and providing opportunities for constructive discussion, debate, and consensus-making is an imperative placed upon teachers, parents, business, and yes, government.

"Storytelling has been around since the start of Mankind. Storytelling was the basic communicational strategy through which culture, traditions, mores, ways of life and early literature was transmitted from one generation to the other. With the advent of internet and web technologies, storytelling has got some new and wider dimensions. The journey of storytelling from its early beginnings to its actual state is the subject of this wonderful graphic below. It documents the major periods and forms of storytelling that was pervasive during each era. It is really amazing to take a pause and take a look back into history to see how storytelling has evolved to be what it is now. Enjoy"
