I'm working on documentation of the points where children will not be
able to discover how Sugar works on their own, and how to integrate
demonstrations of those points into lesson plans. See
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/The_Undiscoverable for an early version
of the list. My family and I are currently preparing to move house
from California to Indiana. After we get settled there, and after the
holidays, I plan to finish a draft of this material and circulate it
for trials and comments.

I would call everybody's attention to the growing movement to replace
printed textbooks with electronic learning materials. Significant
amounts of grant money are becoming available from the US Government,
the Shuttleworth Foundation, Spain, and elsewhere.
