Kusasa: Analytical Education

Jonathan Carter reminds me that I haven't specifically pointed out the attractive new website for Kusasa:

Kusasa, a Zulu word for tomorrow, is the name of a new, dynamic learning system for the 21st century.

Kusasa will provide learners with free software to model the objects, organisms or processes they are studying in any learning area.

Kusasa projects will challenge learners to use computers not for "drill and kill" instruction, but as tools to help them explore, discover and learn.

Free constructionist goodness using Squeak and Python. This should fit in quite well with OLPC, Classmate, Edubuntu thin clients, or, if you're nasty, plain old Windows boxen.

From The Shuttleworth Foundation, natch.

This sounds very interesting. I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks Tom.
