In this world there are hundreds of millions of young people and teenagers but equally in this world there are billions of microprocessors and even trillions of terabytes (1024 Giga Bytes). Each one of these Micro-processors and gigabytes works harmoniously… out of sight, in a non-physical and non-cumulous cloud form! Maybe it isn’t asked enough about the impact and effects all of this technology has on teenagers and young people alike.
From my research the “Heavy Schoolbags Problem” is still a matter to be eradicated for most schools around Ireland & even Internationally. More than 150 out of the full 730 secondary schools of Ireland are now using iPads to either entirely substitute or supplement textbook learning in class. This is good news for some lucky students but there are still hundreds of thousands still lugging heavy bags in and out of school, In terms of equality in education this is unfair. Personally in my own school, iPads or Tablets are not being used in-class and I can’t understand exactly why this is. But don’t take my word for it; the topic of heavy schoolbags is extensively documented in forums around the internet by concerned parents.
As part of the Version 1.4 Update which brings a new Chapter on Economic Inequalities I am delighted to unveil yet another feature which boosts Interactivity and as a result promotes Collaboration, Communication and Out of The Box Thinking. Through the use of simple interactive speech bubbles and instil many key concepts on certain topics such as “First World & Third Opinions on Overseas Aid” and “Obstacles which may hinder Economic Development”, I aim to get students engaged so they can fabricate their own perspectives on key matters which effect Third World Development, Aid and How exactly we can collectively fight Economic Inequalities.

Below Are The Changes made;
