Here’s a simple but powerful class opening activity – share what you’ve learnt in the last class and what you want to learn. This way, you know what a class expects and every student gets an opportunity to be heard. Now, when you tie in a PC you’re all set to take a child’s learning much, much further…
Interested in the real-world application of gravity?
Want to know how photosynthesis actually works?
Like reading graphic novels?
Even five years back, a child had to go to their local library or the school’s library to find out more about a concept. Same went for teachers.

One search and you have everything at your fingertips!
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do”
The question is does every child have the tools to discover and then ultimately follow through that passion?
The PC is a great starting point and is here to stay, enabling an entire generation of students to dive deep into their potential. The 24/7 access of resources and sheer variety make it ideal to learn something beyond the classroom.
Shake up the norm
Every time there is a new invention, it’s initially met with trepidation, then acceptance and finally the feeling that you can’t do without it. Whether it’s the invention of the telephone or the iPod – both were met with shock by the general population. And now look at their impact!
The very same way, access to a PC gives a child (no matter how young) the confidence and know-how to do whatever they set their eyes on.
