Thanks to Brian Sweeting and his connection to Story Pirates (SP) Artistic Director, Lee Overtree (see his GroundBREAKERS interview below), we had the chance to attend last-night's SP benefit. Held at the Symphony Space theater the evening started with a silent auction and raffle and moved-into a full performance by the SP team.
The performances which famously relied on kid's writing and in the case of last-night's performance, audience participation, were full of heart and humor. For more on the "gold" in SP performances, check-out this Vialogues article on NewLearningTimes.com. It was a treat to both experience the performance and to have a chance to share EdLab's SP-focused content via Twitter during the performance. For examples of this "native marketing" check-out the embedded tweets below.
