Sharing the Treasure

This past week, the subject of stimulus materials for programmes has popped up repeatedly in my conversations with tutors, teachers and parents. There are, of course, many excellent commercially produced resources  available, such as photos, flash cards and educational software to support every imaginable learning need.  However, for many people the budget rarely stretches to buying a specific resource for every aspect of a programme. Aside from the obvious problem of expense  I’ve found that often, off-the-shelf materials don’t quite fit a teaching plan I’ve developed around the child’s needs in a particular area - and if I’m not careful the programme can end up being shaped by the available resource more than being led by its specific teaching goals.

What a Wonderful Resource!

Recently, I upgraded from my rather embarrassingly ancient mobile phone – so ancient, in fact, that it was barely one model up from the original brick with buttons and extendable aerial. I’d accumulated so many unused upgrade credits from my provider over the years that when I finally decided to cash them in, I was told that short of an iPhone (awww!) I could ‘afford’ an upgrade to just about any type of phone I wanted. So that is how I’m now the owner of a HTC Wildfire complete with Android Platform which, I was informed, allows me to download the many applications designed by Android to be used through mobile phones.
