AaronSw: Wow, sixdegrees alert. Jorn worked at NWU's ILS dept. which, in adittion to being rather near to my house, was led by Roger Schank, a school reform advocate and friend of Jim Hendler.
AaronSw: """Schank's PR-image for ILS has been that they are "trying to fix the schools" by building educational software that better fits the natural ways students learn.""" - Memoirs of an AI hacker
