Ask yourself, “Why did a mathematician invent the skill I’m trying to help students learn? What problem were they trying to solve?

Re-visiting How we Work at Reclaim | bavatuesdays If nothing else, I learned a couple of things through writing this long, wandering post: 1) integrating various technologies is crucial to make Reclaim Hosting work, and it reinforces why showing students how the web actually works through linking and integrating is an essential literacy in the 21st century; 2) how dependent we are on various softwares and how that reinforces the value of open source as the pricing for many of the proprietary applications continues to go through the roof—making open source alternatives not only interesting but almost essential.
