It seems clear improvements in education are working; the improvements need to be more broadly applied.
I'm hoping for help understanding the research in using software to facilitate math learning. Specifically, where short attention spans, low language skills, and conflicting social agendas clash with learning, is 100%-attentive software a good tool -- to minimize the student waiting to a 20:1 context? If so, which software works best in which contexts? How must we frame the context descriptions & learning goals to reach a solid conclusion?
I'm an embedded systems engineer, currently using Lego Mindstorms & NXT robots to teach math after-school.
