Revisited this article today Words do matter. I want children to be "active agents in their own learning". If we want students to show perseverance then let's give them something worth sticking to.

And I think you are overestimating the ease of g-drive, in my experience, there is always someone in any group who can't access google docs - wrong email address, old browser, lost access... and you don't want to be their tech support.

Make it as timeless as possible, because it's likely it will never get updated. No "coming soon", etc. No fancy templates or underlying engines that will need updates.

"The Grit Narrative" - be sure to read the links to Ira Socol's blogs - the history is quite extraordinary.

And they resurrected some 90’s hookup language as the software. And yet, a few dozen kids will do amazing things with it, and they will be able to promote it based on that.

They give you precut cardboard to fold into a piano or backpack. There is a slot for the little labo player. It can “see” movement inside the box ( like a piano key press). You can program things like playing the piano for different voices. Mostly premade effects

I don’t think either is a goal or pedagogical approach. Stem is a list of content topics. You could choose to approach teaching them in a wide variety of ways. The implication of smushing it into an acronym MAYBE implies some effort to integrate the subjects, but not much else

I don't believe they (or the endpoints you suggest) are on the same continuum. Learning theory is an attempt to explain what happens in the mind of the learner. Pedagogy is an attempt to explain choices made in teaching.

Neither or really define a pedagogy. It’s an interesting thing I think to unpack that.

Henry Segerman designed these borromean hairpins with Saul Schleimer: this is another solution to the problem of designing three identical gears, each of which meshes with the other two, and yet the mechanism can move (but translating instead of rotating)
