Students could be asked to consider a number of their recent lessons in a variety of subjects (History, Biology etc) and to suggest ways in which CAD could potentially bring to life a particular aspect of one of those lessons. As an extension activity students could be asked to storyboard a sequence of CAD material for one of the lessons.
