Stories for Learning in European Schools
TALES investigates the educational impact of oral and digital storytelling in formal education. The project's activities and outcomes include a state of the art about digital storytelling, documentation on examples of good practice and pilot studies, "stories" created by schools (age range 6-18) and, most importantly, a manual for teachers (to be published in November 2015). Materials will be published as the project unfolds.
The Languages Company is working the Goldsmiths, University of London, and Shonaleigh Cumbers, the professional storyteller - one of the last traditionally trained storytellers of the Yiddish drut'syla tradition.
Together we will be carrying out a pilot of storytelling in teaching primary German at a London primary school.
The project is running from November 2013 to November 2015.
