How We Think: Storytelling as the Creative Heart of Learning
KEYNOTERS Sherry Norfolk and Lyn Ford
In an open forum that includes lively hands-on and entertaining small-group activities, two highly acclaimed storytelling/teaching artists share from the knowledge of their own experiences, authentically approaching the creative heart, or core, of learning through storytelling strategies. Recognize and honor the unique skills and pedagogic power already within your personal repertoire. See storytelling as the key that opens the door to learning in the 21st century classroom.
Wordplay: Games That Teach Storytelling Skills
Virginia's own Anthony Burcher
Wordplay is an amazing new way to learn and master the skills needed for being a better storyteller and public speaker. Participants will play and laugh themselves to a better understanding of the craft needed to tell a story well, facilitated by a master of the spoken word and the storytelling game.
