    I like a good read, helps to de-stress after work. I can’t remember the last time I bought a paper book. Eyes are not what they once were and the fonts in some books can be way too small for me so for the last couple of years I’ve been using kindle books. I like everything about Kindle : different font, font sizes, page colours and it’s on my laptop, tablet or phone. Many say they love the feel of a book, the turning of the pages, the smell of paper.

    What about you?

    I still say the good old feel of the pages in a book.

    I like to read things worth reading….although I must admit that that is up to my own personal under standing and moral wisdom…

    When you read a book…..its reading some one else’s thoughts ideas and production….some one else may fire your imagination but at the end of the day….it’s still their imagination that’s firing you up.

    My question is…………..does any one have an imagination of their own any more or are we just all looking for back scratchers?

    Now there’s a question.

    I personally felt that when the first Playstation came out it should have a lot to answer for in the future.

    I spend my working day with small children supervising both in the classroom and on the playground. Over the last 15 years the playground games have certainly changed. There was a time we could stop the ‘gun games’ but now because of the games they play at home online that’s all they seem to want to play unless we structure their playtime but staff feel it is their free time to express themselves. In the classroom we hear so often ‘Dunno’ ‘can’t think of anything’

    Is imagination lost at such a young age? I think so.

    Imagination is a foundation of what dreams are built on. Still exist today no matter your age..provide a goal for future possible change or turn of events.

    Tinks,

    I’m told that the obsession kids develop with these games is deadly for their imagination and sense of exploration in life. I was reading research on this, but I can’t remember where.

    When I was a kid, we were all pretty hooked on the television, and especially Westerns (war films to a lesser extent – I’m talking of the boys, of course). It didn’t stop our imagination because we wanted to re-enact the exciting scenes we saw, pretend we were living dangerously.

    But with the gaming, the kids can enact the dangers personally, in interaction with the playstation, or maybe with a friend via the playstation. They’ve withdrawn from the world.

    mind you, my experience of JC is that the same works with the PC – people witdraw into a relationship with their PC. So maybe the kids are preparing for a future social life in JC

     

    Aaaaaaargh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
