Storytelling, an ancient tradition, is taking new forms with the advent of digital technologies and the World Wide Web. This paper explores the concept of storytelling as a strategy to create online learning communities and communities of practice for teachers who use technology to teach and learn. Inspired by models such as Apple Learning Interchange, the George Lucas Foundation, enGauge, Knowledge Loom, inTime, and others, the paper describes how a Vermont online learning community project, VT3 - Vermont Teachers Teaching with Technology, a spin-off of the University of Vermont's 2000 Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) grant, envisions a statewide learning community focused on best practices in teaching with technology. Issues concerning sustainability and ongoing support are explored.
