Words of Wisdom

Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything
that can be counted counts.
- Albert Einstein


Better learning will not come from finding better ways for the teacher to instruct but from giving the learner better opportunities to construct.
-Seymour Papert, author of Mindstorms and The Children's Machine

This group is also connected to the Elementary-Lesson-Share Yahoo group and its spin-offs on the Yahoo network. The E-L-S group was created 15 years ago so its membership is much larger, thus, the level of participation is higher.
