It is not all bad being a teacher. Apart from helping to develop the working population of the future that is, there are some perks of the job. For example every teacher that attends an industry event entitled the Handheld Learning Conference in October will be given a free Nintendo DS along with a copy of a brain training game.
Now we all know that handheld and interactive technology is playing a huge part in everybody's life, especially education, and apparently the teachers can use these DS consoles to their full advantage in the classroom. Of course none of them will be buying Zelda games and battling away in their living rooms - the consoles are strictly for educational purposes only.
Now that is what I call a good freebie. Can anyone top that?
