Our Stories

The Our Stories™ website collects audio stories from children and adults through institutions and UNICEF gatherings. People talk about their lives, often sharing hardship and courage. The site includes stories from Brazil's Museum of the Person, stories from Ghana, Uganda, Tanzania, Pakistan, and a number of other countries. Currently, stories of children in developing countries who are using One Laptop per Child (OLPC) computers are being solicited.

"My eCoach provides me with lots of great tools which I can use as part of my new teacher training program. Information can be found all in one place and accessed from anywhere! Using our Team Page, I quickly post program updates. With the Universal Builder, I've created a web site for everyone's common questions. I've learned a great deal about my teachers and their practice through our Forum, and my teachers have been able to network and share their terrific teaching ideas. My team coaches and I are able to provide timely feedback for our new teachers' learning plans--no more NCR forms!

My eCoach provides increased opportunities for communication, quick access to customized online resources, and the ability to collect program data and improve accountability."
