Patrick=97Ohnewein=97and Bernie Innocenti at the TIS Innovation Park. We
met with Prof. Alessandro Efrem Colombi and some of his colleagues and
students from the Free University of Bozen - Bolzano faculty of
education. We had an animated discussion about how to advance the
engagement of teachers in constructionist thinking as facilitated by
Sugar. He and his students seem ready to engage from both a
pedagogical and technological perspective.

Back in Boston, I met with Seth Weinberger. His foundation
( makes the TeacherMate, a small
hand-held device with embedded Gnash applications running in it. He
and his team have developed some nice reading and math activities that
could be readily ported to Sugar in the form of Gnash desktop
activities, as per the discussion about bundles
being led by Wade Brainerd on the sugar-devel list.
