It is great to see education evolving, when I was a
student over ten years ago, we had no tablets with Wi-Fi access, technology has

looking perplexed on occasion trying to learn fact after boring fact. Some of the lessons they had better
techniques to encourage our involvement but in the majority of them we simply listened
to lots of information without having any influence or control over it.

the video and hearing of winged monsters and missions is the stuff of
fantasies! But for students feeling

facts! Inspiring students to embrace
learning differently, with more of a challenge, not just in a parrot fashion

been engaged like this. The sad thing
is I remember so little of the “facts” I religiously learnt to pass my exams

very different experience to education than I did, already they are familiar with
computers and smart phones.
