Audrey's curator insight, October 18, 7:49 AM

It is  much easier to access paper material or material that you can create yourself without the complications of machine equipment, which can be inaccessible. 

 

An important part of learning and using your brain is the ability to be flexible. It will take time to make e text books flexible enough for young people to use them creatively.

Você pode publicar um livro sem editora, e ele não precisa ser apenas digital.

Turn your books and documents into miniature landscapes and movie scenes whenever you place sticky notes on them. Tokyo-based designer Duncan Shotton (who also made the Rainbow Pencils) recently came up with Sticky Page Markers, post-its that look like New York, London, and even a Martian landscape when grouped together.
