Since many people are not aware that the Net (including the Web)
can be searched in various ways, here is some encouragement:
Note: you need a form supporting client for the following links!
Note that you get more meaningful results if you use search engines like
Yahoo to hunt for loosely defined topics. Larger indexes
like Alta Vista turn out too many entries.
Examples of Search:
- Search Yahoo for: Technology and Education Note that Yahoo spits out links
AND also the sublists they belong to and you may surf the latter manually.
This is in principle the most important section, but
practice decided otherwise for the moment (I hope!!).
Every now and then I will try to "round up" a topic.
Important: please also check
Institutions & People page
for many interesting work going on!

by Roger Schank and Chip Cleary, The Institute for the Learning Sciences. Quote: "The Institute for the Learning Sciences is now offering Engines for
Education on the WWW. Engines, a hyper-book by Roger Schank and Chip
Cleary, discusses what's wrong with the education system, how to reform
it, and especially, the role of educational technology in that reform.
It describes the progress we've made at the Institute for the Learning
Sciences using computers to provide motivating learning environments
that let students learn things by doing them. Engines is constructed as
an ASK system, a form of structured hypermedia developed at ILS based on
the metaphor of a question-answer conversation."
