Stefan commented on Empowering the Imprisoned

Hi , the idea to help in mates realize their potential sounds great, sometimes meeting someone or experiencing something can make a great impact indeed, I remember that someone in my home town was volunteringly going to the local prison and teaching art and drawing to the prissoners, he had great results with many inmates turning up. Probably by helping them from breaking away from their routine they can develope skills which upon release can help the find employment easier.
Looking forward to see how this idea progresses.


Stefan commented on Technological education for the elderly

Hi Barry, It is an interesting topic of discussion. An idea wpould be to design interfaces and aps whic they can easily recognise and relate to. a great deal of elderly people relay on text to understand rather than symboils and icons.Maybe these help, looking forward to see how this progresses.

The Idea has great potential, allowing individuals to study at their own rate is something that allow a more flexible study schedule around other commitments such as work. A potential chlallenge that might arise is how the student will be assessed on his progress and study ? Will it be through a series of online assessments ?Also how can one find and get access to interniships ? Looking forward to see how this developes .
