On a typical paper worksheets a question would normally look something like this: What are the different figurative language techniques used in in this text.”
The lines on the paper gives students the space to write their answers. Unfortunately, iBooks Author only allows you to put in multiple choice questions. The iBookWidgets app does allow you to put in text questions but they’re not always aesthetically pleasing and can be a time consuming process.
An easier option is to write the question in your iBook and let students type their answers in a note like below.
An added bonus is that all notes are automatically saved to the “My Notes” part of the iBook.

Walt Disney's & Salvador Dali - Destino 2003 |

The film tells the story of Chronos, the personification of time and the inability to realize his desire to love a mortal. The scenes blend a series of surreal paintings of Dali with dancing and metamorphosis.


The target production began in 1945, 58 years before its completion and it was a collaboration between Walt Disney and the Spanish surrealist painter, Salvador Dalí. Salvador Dali and Walt Disney Destiny was produced by Dali and John Hench for 8 months between 1945 and 1946.


Dali, at the time, Hench described as a "ghostly figure" who knew better than Dali or the secrets of the Disney film. For some time, the project remained a secret.


The work of painter Salvador Dali was to prepare a six-minute sequence combining animation with live dancers and special effects for a movie in the same format of "Fantasia."


Dali in the studio working on The Disney characters was fighting against time, the giant sundial that emerges from the great stone face of Jupiter and that determines the fate of all human novels.


Dalí and Hench were creating a new animation technique, the cinematic equivalent of "paranoid critique" of Dali. Method inspired by the work of Freud on the subconscious and the inclusion of hidden and double images.

Dalí said: "Entertainment highlights the art, its possibilities are endless." The plot of the film was described by. Dalí as "A magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time."

Walt Disney said it was "A simple story about a young girl in search of true love."

Ogmios, Ogmius

Ogmios, Ogmius | educational videos online |


Ogmios is a gaulish god of eloquence, and the personification of poetry, literature, learning and persuasiveness...


He was also a binding god who would use his powers of persuasion to bind men onto himself and then escort souls on their journey to the after-live...


It is he who invented the runic language of the Druids.


His attributes are a bow and stick.


The father of Ogham was Oghma; The mother of Ogham was the hand or knife of Oghma...


Roman sources describe Ogmios as an orator of remarkable charisma. Celtic sources from the same era describe Ogmios as a educator and the creator of the ogam writing system.


Combining these, Ogmios becomes a wise and charismatic teacher of Celtic ways and scholarly endevour.This was the guide and patron of the Druid Order of Teachers.


A Celt, in a discussion with Lucian, explained how the Celtic Ogmios, personifying the power of speech was represented by Heracles rather than Hermes.


This Celt made various references to Greek legends in the course of the conversation. - John Rhys, Lectures on the Origin and Growth of Religion as Illustrated by Celtic Heathendom, London 1898.


Stranger, I will tell you the secret of the painting, for you seem very much troubled about it.


We Celts do not consider the power of speech to be Hermes, as you Greeks do, but we represent it by means of Heracles, because he is much stronger than Hermes.


So if this old man Heracles, the power of speech, draws men after him, tied to his tongue by their ears you have no reason to wonder, as you must be aware of the close connection between the ears and the tongue.


...In a word, we Celts are of opinion that Heracles himself performed everything by the power of words, as he was a wise fellow, and that most of his compulsion was effected by persuasion.


His weapons ... are his utterances which are sharp and well aimed, swift to pierce the mind: and you too say that words have wings...


But, whereas Hercules was a  mortal with supernatural powers, Ogmios  seems more of a god to the Celts...


The German Renaissance painter Albrecht Dürer depicted this deity. Commonly compared with the Irish Ogma...
