The 2020 Coronavirus pandemic forced teachers around the globe to adapt their in-person teaching praxes to virtual learning contexts. It also prompted professional storytellers to transition from live to virtual storytelling performances and workshops, making salient the flexibility of storytelling to provide educational content through a variety of modalities and contexts. Thus, one of the unexpected but positive consequences of the pandemic has been expanded opportunities for educators interested in the pedagogy and praxis of storytelling in educational contexts to take advantage of online high-quality professional development opportunities led by master storytellers from around the globe.
