Teachers from schools across the UK gathered at Knebworth House in Hertfordshire last week to mark the start of National Share-a-Story Month.

Hosted by Discovery Education on 18th April, the Digital Storytelling Day showcased the very latest tools and ideas for using ed-tech in literacy, helping teachers to nurture a love of stories in every child.

Taking advantage of Knebworth’s famous dinosaur trail, teachers took part in a prehistoric QR coded treasure hunt, and learned how the bar-code technology can be used in literacy lessons.
