Not engage, like simply hooking them in with entertaining or trending toys, rather we work to engage our students in meaningful learning.

We must remember no matter how new and exciting emergent technology is, the true educational potential is only achieved through thoughtful experience design and meaningful conversation.

History of Pearling - Pearling path The oyster beds on the north of Bahrain were the centre of a natural pearl fishery that dominated the Arabian Gulf from at least the 3rd century BC until the early 20th century. Exploding demand for pearls beginning in the 19th century produced a single product economy in Bahrain, centred in its then capital and the capital of Arabian Gulf pearling, Muharraq. Pearl exports contributed three quarters of Bahrain’s total exports in 1877, with most destined for Bombay, Persia and Turkey.

Women at war: the British sisters who nursed the French army (1915-1919) Marcia and Juliet weren’t flighty socialites when war broke out. Their first letters testify to their awareness and curiosity. Both regularly read the newspapers and had minds of their own.

Overlooked No More: Annie Londonderry, Who Traveled the World by Bicycle If ever there was an avatar of these combined social trends, “of free, untrammeled womanhood,” it was Annie Cohen Kopchovsky, a Latvian immigrant who in June 1894, at about age 23, cycled away from her Boston home, leaving a husband and three small children, for a journey around the world. Though Thomas Stevens, an Englishman, had circumnavigated the globe on a high-wheeler several years earlier, no woman had tried such a feat. Keeping her husband and family a secret for most of her journey, she called herself Annie Londonderry and agreed, in exchange for $100, to attach an advertisement to her bicycle for the Londonderry Lithia Spring Water Company of New Hampshire. Her bicycle and her person became a rolling billboard, the first of many moneymaking schemes she would come up with to finance her travels.
