    Abstract

    Storytelling is the basis for learning and memory. An international community of learners has been formed to pilot a new online storytelling forum. This forum has been established on the principle that learning is most successful within the context of a thriving social community of practice and interest. This paper argues the case for storytelling as a vehicle for education and reports on the review that has taken place of the material produced by the students during the initial establishment phase of the forum and the evidence for spontaneous social interaction taking place amongst the students. In the light of the evidence for social interaction, the subsequent developments planned for the forum are outlined.
