Litmus Films presents three diverse documentaries with a common theme. Whether you're a 5-year-old Norwegian lighting a campfire, a 10-year-old Hungarian operating rail signals, or a 13-year-old English schoolboy protecting endangered orchids from extinction - children respond better when they know it matters. As educational systems around the world become more risk-averse, these films showcase risk-benefit.
For children, students, parents and teachers, Learning for Real's three stories entertain and inform, presenting real tasks not as a threat, but as an opportunity to learn.

Lots of food for thought. I wish my son had had some kind of authentic work experience during school.
