“[F]or the purposes of helping somebody learn a complex concept or personalizing the learning experience – a book is a terrible device. It is, by definition, one-size-fits-all. It can’t be updated, it can’t be interactive, and it’s not terribly engaging.”

– Matt MacInnis of Inkling, quoted in the Financial Post, February 27, 2012.

Walk-Cycle

I’d like to see an e-book do that!

In the end, all you need to do is feed teachers and off they’ll go, helping to educate young people everywhere.

Alas, maybe that’s the problem.
