Visiting SLA

I spent Monday hanging out with Chris, Marcie and the gang at Science Leadership Academy to conspire with SchoolTool developer Alan Elkner on how to make SchoolTool Chris's "Killer App." I think we worked out a good basis for a proposal to Mark. We had been planning on collaborating last year, but we learned that year that without a developer in the same city, it is too difficult to pull off. Luckily, Alan moved to Philly in the meantime, so now we should be ready to roll, once I work out all the details.

The school is very nice. I can't quite gush as enthusiastically as most SLA visitors, simply because it has been a long time since I've had a reason to be in a school that wasn't an interesting progressive one, so everything there is pretty familiar, but in a good, feeling at home kind of way.

But... but... but... we're progressive *and* we have computers! That's new, that's different, that's... that's... that's...

Aw, crap.

Great to see you, Tom.
