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.

"I love that this is an easy to use site that fosters professional collaboration and improvement of teaching and learning while providing tools for educators in a one stop place. The templates are easy to use. I've been using them lately for workshops and online courses as well as for creating and updating an educator web resource list. Updating on the fly is so easy. My sites look professional and are easy to navigate. In the past I've used them to help teachers with project planning, and would love to do that again.

Barbara is extremely responsive to my needs when I've made requests. This personal touch is extremely awesome!"
