What speaks to you?
The video on VST are very interesting. Children are discussing a piece of art. What make them to understand better. They getting ideas from each other. They getting ideas from each other. They are giving all different ideas and what makes it easier for the teacher to teach the lesson. The discussion between students is very  important, you watch them as a teacher our they will conclude. You see them building their confidence.

Give you ideas?

We mostly use this in the culture part
