In summary, Denning relates that “stories are like trapdoors, escape hatches, portals through which we can expand our lives and learn about other worlds. They offer guide posts to what is important in our life. They generate meaning, they embody our values. They give us the clues from which we can discover what ultimately matters.” (2011, p. xi)

Applying hypertext to constructivist learning opportunities comes with challenges, debate and opportunities. Being aware of learners’s needs, connecting learners with each other, actively engaging them in constructing their knowledge through creation of personal narrative and story are all essential elements of the educational landscape. As with hypertext, this is a never ending search for just the right tool, for the right learner, at the right time.

For me, as for all who explore constructing meaning with hypertext and stories, it ends where it begins.

This quote from T.S.Elliot exemplifies the journey:

“We shall not cease from exploration

And the end of all our exploring

Will be to arrive where we started

And know the place for the first time.”
