This shake-me-up box of delights for the iPhone generates a fresh learning challenge each time it is shaken. You give the LEG (Learning Event Generator) a shake, the cards spin and you are presented with a learning challenge.
Primed with over 120,000 learning challenges the LEG is an endless storehouse of delightful calls to action.
The LEG also features subject selection so you can select from 10 different subjects and then challenges will be restricted to that curriculum area.
The aim is to provoke thought, activity and deeper understanding all in the innocent guise of having some active-learning fun. You face a challenge and make something. People tell us what they like most about the LEG is the way it "nudges you into really doing some learning by having a task (sometimes a very challenging one) and some fun in trying to rise to the challenge, followed by delight in what has been achieved.”
UK technology writer Merlin John calls the LEG "A fruit machine for learning"
The LEG comes with built in links
