Enhancing learning with new tools
Dominic explained his choice: “I’ve always been fascinated by how advances in technology and mobile devices can enhance the learning experience. People are often split into being left or right brained thinkers, the battle of creative versus reason in thought. I personally feel, however, that anyone can become very knowledgable in any area they choose, and it’s not the content they necessarily find difficult to digest, it’s often how that content is presented to them.
“This video shows a fantastic example of a new interactive method of teaching arithmetic, where even those who do not “get” maths would quickly gain an understanding of how the variables interact with each other. The most enlightening piece is his closing quote of tools that ‘bring information into our world, on our terms’, demonstrated when the child invents his own narrative, it’s his story to create. Even though it is a crude example, the implications of how this format could be developed with more complicated variables shows tremendous promise.”
