Storytelling and Apprenticeships...Legacies that Can Sustain Technology.
Gannon-Cook, Ruth
This paper examines how culture and communication are transmitted via storytelling and apprenticeships. Recent studies are reviewed that reveal that storytelling teaches important lessons to students and that other ancient customs, like apprenticeships, are also possible solutions for problems facing contemporary educators. Relevance to technology and distance education is considered. A comparison of ancient storytellers with modern innovators is then presented. The paper concludes with a discussion of why the use of apprenticeships has survived, including the benefits of technology internships, the role of curriculum designers, and the need for ongoing training.
