  10. 10. Some comments from teachers:<br />“This is fabulous.”<br />“I love the possibilities that this holds for the classroom.”<br />“Absolutely brilliant. Like an interactive graphic novel.”<br />“This is a stunningly brilliant story. Fantastic.”<br /> <br />
  11. 11. We need more of this sort of thing in schools.”<br />The kids LOVE the story and wait for each instalment, checking regularly at home.”<br />“Excellent way to teach visual literacy.”<br />“This looks, sounds and feels fantastic as a teaching resource – particularly for reluctant readers.”<br />“Absolutely think IA is one of the most creative storytelling devices I have ever seen – Looove it!”<br /> <br />
  12. 12. “I think what makes Alice so special is the strong narrative that allows for deep reading, conversations that move into critical<br />reading, prediction, a shared experience between readers who are anticipating what might happen next and then designing and writing their own 'next' episode.<br />Dr. Gloria Latham, School of Education, RMIT Australia<br /> <br />
  13. 13. “Our vision is that children will grow up with Alice, from class to class, from year to year. Attaching curriculum learning experiences to a well-loved story will delight classrooms and online learners as they delight audiences for books, movies or computer games. Being tuned in to the story will afford teachers opportunities to address their objectives more quickly and in a way that has the student’s full attention.”<br />Ian Harper, creator and owner of The Bradfield Company<br /> <br />
