    NFB generally has a great selection of Canadian film and animation, historical and present. This film about so called exciting new ways of public education is boring, obscure and self-important as the teachers and the schooling I myself had to go through in the 1960s and 1970s. Marshall McLuhan famous for the expression -the medium is the message- which later became the obnoxious expression -the medium is the massage- has a few interesting insights on how a child perceives the world. Here Marshall McLuhan along with the teachers are advocating that some pseudo advanced, and cheap technology put into school environments engage all the senses of the students, simulating the way a child enjoys play. I believe what children, and young people love to learn about is nature, and how to recreate the wonders of nature in human civilisation.
