How did her parents pack so much talent into so little space?

Programming is really not all that difficult. The chip in your computer is made of silicon - sand! If sand can do it, you can do it.

Where are they now?  Did THEY get any benefit from Dunn and Dunn?

My students must agree with Dr. Siemens. I teach an introductory programming course using Java as the vehicle.  The course is not about Java, but more about how you program, so we don't go into detail.  The students this year decided to add JTables and JLists to their coursework despite these being neither taught nor required.  They used social media to disseminate their finds, created a mutual support network ... and got the grades their inventiveness deserved.  Long live connectivism.

Excellent - however, I still worry that education is something that is being done to students rather than by them.  The future role of the teacher would be to facilitate and create a social environment (current schools give much more than just learning) rather than as an authority figure.

What a wonderful theory well presented.  Thanks.  I'm just putting a paper to bed on reconciling Vygotsy and Pask.  A three way reconciliation is now whirring away between my two brain cells.  :-)

Wonderful service, excellent food and reasonably priced. What is not to enjoy. You do have to book though because it is always full.

We took the family (four children and six adults). There was something for everyone and the children really enjoyed it. We can recommend this theme park highly. As Arnie (and Gen. MacArthur) said, "we'll be back".
