I am teaching a group of Academic level international students and we used this article for a reading comprehension quiz. Additionally,they had to define "crowdsource," "profound" and "creeping," for instance, and use them in a sentence that matched the way the words were used in the article. "Upend" was a challenge: it doesn't literally mean to turn something upside down but to change dramatically. Similarly, "entangle" was supposed to be understood as literally becoming enmeshed, yet some chose the metaphorical meaning of being entangled in problems.
Despite these difficulties, the students, many of whom are majoring in engineering and industrial design, appreciated what e-NABLE is all about and a few even saw the "robotic hand" at Imagine RIT.
