  1. Constructivist theory is good, but this presentation seems to ignore hands-on (kinesthetic) learning. How about doing an experiment local instead of using a Cloud/web-app? Such does not exclude web support. See the Fab Lab and Fab Academy This model is college+ but similar methods and tools can be used middle/high school, perhaps primary.

  2. Thanks for sharing your comment and link, Jerry. I wholeheartedly agree that kinesthetic learning is important too.

    I really like your subsequent discussion with David on Google Fiber for Maui.

  3. you're welcome! I'm glad you like it!
