People like stories and can learn a great deal from them.  This presentation will discuss the value of storytelling as an instructional tool and share stories to illustrate the value of storytelling.  We cannot know everything and so it is imperative that we learn from others and to foster that discourse.  This presentation will, in broad terms, discuss options for setting storytelling sessions in the viewer’s community to grow the use of directed story telling as a community teaching tool.

  • At the end of this presentation, viewers will:
    • Understand the value of storytelling in instruction.
    • Have a new set of stories to tell their students to illustrate points for emergencies, student instruction and environmental concerns.
    • Know how they can take this format to their home airport communities and set up activities to encourage community learning from storytelling.
