Timely and useful

Jane Schmude's curator insight, March 17, 2013 6:44 PM

We all need help with how to use iPads in lessons. Universities are also adjusting to this way of learning in tutorials. If students can have access to these devices during research or reading, they will be well prepared for their future education.

Pixar really does know how to tell a good story. Have loved watching "Up" with my kids. There is some depth to the tale and even my 3 year old daughter could understand the grief and loss involved in the story.

 

It would be great to use something like this in lessons, as children know many of these stories already. It could be a springboard for writing.
