Helping the blind see


 

Although this video is now more than a year old, I recently stumbled upon it again. Although I am not an app developer, my role in iGod as a ‘enabler’ especially for those who have not realised how easy and accessible apps are to help them in their daily lives, have given me a renewed appreciation for the developers that have created their amazing apps to help others. Literally, they are changing the world – as the video so rightly trumps.

Since 2011, we have been involved with different schools and educators and have seen the eyes and minds light up at the possibilities. It’s quite awesome to note that we are on the verge of the biggest social and educational revolution in recent history. Not only are the apps and technology ripe and ready to power charge the revolution, but that the target audience, kids and next gen learners are all ready to rumble!

Bring on the revolution! In the vein of Les Mis –

Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?

Incidentally, there is also a story in the video about an extraordinary teacher who is making learning so fun and interesting for his kids, despite their resources and environment.
