Lets Talk Possibility Episode 7: The Gift of Books

  • Possibilities open up when you have access to educational materials, and especially books
  • What is the Bookshelf Project?
    • How did you see the need for your study techniques in the bookshelf centres?
  • BOOK - The Power Of One by Bryce Courtenay
    • What could the impact of kindle and ebooks have on learning and reading?

    • "Yoza publishes m-novels, short for mobile novels on cellphones, and invites readers to comment on these stories. Aimed at teens and young adults, our stories make for compelling, entertaining reading. Our philosophy is to publish great content where the kids are at: on MXit." see:http://read.org.za/index.php?id=25&tx_ttnews[tt_news]=54&cHash=0b746be83e
  • MOVIE- Ken Robinson says schools kill creativity
    • http://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity.html

    • Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.

    • ‎"Picasso once said this. He said that all children are born artists. The problem is to remain an artist as we grow up. I believe this passionately, that we don't grow into creativity, we grow out of it. Or rather, we are educated out of it" - Ken Robinson, a visionary cultural leader of our times.

    • Is the way we are educating our children today, actually doing them a dis-service?
  • RESOURCE/TIP of the show
    • Chris shares his exam technique tip
  • Our sister channel (LTAfrikaans) is reminding everyone that this coming Saturday (13 August) is "Buy an Afrikaans book" day
