Audrey's insight:

Audrey's insight:

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.
